Profile: Mort Solberg
Afternoon Moose Watercolor
Mort Solberg understands that accidents can lead to wonderful paintings. He has learned throughout his artistic career how to embrace the mercurial characteristics of his primary medium of watercolor that resist the control of the artist and that can produce those "wonderful accidents". Within a wash of colors flowing together he is able to see a stream edge or a roaring waterfall. And with his very deft hand, he is able to pull out the rocks that edge the stream and add the moose lit by late afternoon sun wading in the water.
