Sally Robertson

My watercolor paintings have developed over more than four decades, inspired in great part by my own garden in Bolinas. Sometimes it is the morning light on a petal which evokes a painting, other times a serene still life, and more recently the reflections and movement of the water garden. I try to search out the most telling and revelatory aspects of my subjects, always pushing the limits of the descriptive power of watercolor. Although my work is characterized by a strong sense of realism, I have a reverence for the poetic quality of watercolor, and believe that watercolor applied wet into wet has a spontaneous life of its own and an exuberance that reflects nature most powerfully. My challenge and my goal is bringing together the clear eye of a gardener and the magic vision of an artist.
