This was one of the first watermedia pieces I did some years ago after my heart surgery. It was a step toward more abstraction.  A dear friend, another artist, suggested that for a real abstract piece
 the spider web would have to I kept pushing the envelope.

My mother, a wonderful photographer,  as you know from seeing her work on this blog, loved
to photograph spiderwebs after a rain shower when the sun was striking them.  I used one of
her photographs and studied spider web construction.  This was the result.   It sold in one

                                                          Documenting the Process
Below is the process as I documented it.  I used to do this more; documenting my work in
art journals.  Those journals were/are identical black spiraled ones which have withstood time.

They come in handy now as I go back and let them inspire me once again.  The photograph at the right bottom cormer is my mother's- the initial inspiration. This is  from a page in one of my journals.
