Cover: Arcata Plaza with Trillium Essence:

This vibrational essence was made under a full moon during the Hale Bopp Comet. On the paper, it was very focused and the pigments did not move. When you use watercolor pigment with tap water, moving the pigment and diluting it is how you get the varying tones of the different colors. Even adding more water hardly fazed the pigment. That is why this particular depiction is so vibrant compared to some of the softer essence images. I took risks with water that I never took before just to test it. Beautiful color mixes can be made with trillium essence as it is steadfast and deeply rich.
