rooster watercolor by Susan Arneson

“Ruling the Roost” watercolor on paper, 12″ x 12″ by artist Susan Arneson

Color is my favorite emotion! The colors used in a painting tend to invoke an emotional response. Using watercolor, the paints work their way down the page to create an unexpected ending. I like that!

Listening to music stimulates my thoughts in terms of the way I use color and create a sense of rhythm; this compels the viewer to pay close attention to the textural qualities and symbolism.
