For the Love of King 2019For the Love of KingWatercolor on cradled Aquabord (8x10x0.875)Lydia Wood, 2019Why do I want to see barriers broken and opportunities created in St. Louis? For the Love of King. I wanted to focus on this moment with my nephew who is full of curiosity and promise. He is the future of this city.My Moments Series captures fleeting moments permitting the viewer to stop and reflect. I let watercolor flow across the surface, relinquishing some control over the process. This further represents how we do not have control over time, but we can hold onto images for an eternity.I paint on Aquabord which is a special clay surface that can be varnished and hang on the wall, not requiring glass or a frame. This piece is a 7/8” cradled Aquabord.
Momentarily Still
Momentarily StillMomentarilly Still endeavors to freeze time. Life is a blur, with littleopportunity to savor each moment. My Moments Series captures fleeting moments permitting the viewer to stop and reflect. Life is my muse’s adventure and there is little time to reflect on where he has been.As a pediatric trauma nurse, I have seen how precious each moment is. Sometimes those moments are gone too soon. I ask the viewer to savor time. To spin that still image around in their head. To choose moments in their own life to treasure and sit with.I let watercolor flow across the surface, relinquishing some control over the process. This further represents how we do not have control over time, but we can hold onto images for an eternity.I paint on Aquabord which is a special clay surface that can be varnished and hang on the wall, not requiring glass or a frame. This piece is a 2” cradled Aquabord. The wood edges are stained the same color as the background and form a natural continuation of the piece.Watercolor on Cradled Aquabord22 x 30 x 22019

In this particular painting, I ask the viewer to appreciate insignificant details. The watercolor flows over the background to bring the flower picker into focus, as he has no outside awareness beyond the violet.
