Seed Atom 11.3 Birth by Sarna Marcus

My formal art training taught me to work with oil on canvas. But about five years ago I was introduced to watercolors. I liked its luminosity and spontaneity and so I continue to explore its possibilities. And while it poses challenges­, I have discovered techniques that create surprises and go beyond my own ideas of what I wish to achieve. The orbs that I paint in my “Seed Atom” series are filled with an intense energy, an energy that exerts pressure outward against the membrane that contains it, creating a kind of rapt stasis. Few or numerous—massed together, or moving and growing. Like seeds in a pod, seeds that grow and push, eventually freeing themselves. Escaping.
