Robin Poteet, A Glorious Chaos

Watercolor has held me spellbound since I first laid brush to paper. It has a freshness and luminosity that, to my eye, is unique among painting media. I am often in awe of the way the paint moves and mingles and changes ... up to the very moment it dries on the paper. With each new painting, watercolor teaches me timing and patience and humility. Its ver y nature forces me to embrace the unpredictable and to relinquish control over my painting process.

Cezanne's Muse

Whatever my subject, I attempt to paint with a calculated mix of detail and looseness that has developed through years of practice. I am ever mindful of the strength that light and contrast bring to a painting and give myself the artistic freedom to exaggerate these elements.

I am honored that my recent work has won top awards and has been featured in national publications and books. I am diligently focused on continuing to grow as an artist as well as a creative, caring human being.
