Watercolor Paintings

by Martin McDonough

These fantasy images were created by playing quickly
with colors and shapes using watercolor paints.

Later, my imagination sees figures in the composition,
and I am aware of the characters that present themselves.

A scene and a story and a title become apparent
through my wondering what drama is going on.

I am always amazed at what emerges
from this quick, spontaneous and playful process.

This is the magic of the imagination,
revealing soul through these dramatic presentations.
