IF: Twist. It all started in watercolor, but ended up being a mixed-media piece. Started with a pencil sketch, moved to watercolor, scanned and worked on it digitally. I've completed two novels--working out publisher contract details on one--with an undersea world, and although there are "mermaids," I rarely draw them with tails--caudal fins. (I draw and paint many of the scenes about which I write. Click here for more of my work).
