watercolor on paper
11 x 14 inches
Moving waters are a back-story for my WaterColor Wobbles that are shifted, torn and split, caused by flowing and pausing senses and actions. Often these watercolor paintings originate with an X line to define the paper’s squared proportions. This particular piece has X splits surfacing.
Embracing abstraction with social, environmental and chronological influences are groundwork of Ruth Hardinger’s art.
