Day 227 ~ Transform a room into a new environment.

This is the 9X12 watercolor painting I worked on this past weekend while doing the Mountain Heritage show.

It's the combination of two images. One was a photo of a kitchen from a magazine. The other, some trees near my home.

I wanted the images to merge so that the kitchen became the outdoor environment, too. The trees and grasses grow from the counter and out of the sink. The images are translucent, creating an ambivalence about what is where. Someone who saw me working on it at the show suggested a double-exposure.
