db Waterman Profile picture "Between Tides" is an abstract mixed media painting depicting a sun-drenched summer day on the beach. This vibrant artwork blends elements of reality and imagination, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in a nostalgic coastal scene. db Waterman's approach combines a white abstract background, representing the blazing summer sun, with a colorful foreground of weathered wood panels reminiscent of an old, decaying boat, creating a harmonious blend of contrasting elements.

At the heart of the composition, two little boys frolic playfully on the sandy shore, their carefree spirit reflecting the joyful energy of youth. The artist wants to capture the innocence and wonder of childhood and evoke a sense of nostalgia in the viewer.

The white abstract background serves as a canvas for the sun's glare, its intense rays radiating outward and enveloping the entire scene in a warm, luminous glow. db Waterman's choice of an abstract background transcends the limitations of a traditional seascape, allowing the audience to perceive the beach as an ethereal dream scape, where time stands still and the beauty of the moment is eternal.

In the foreground of the painting are wooden panels. Reminiscent of an old, remote boat or beach hut, these weathered panels evoke a sense of history and a charming coastal nostalgia.

"Between Tides" is an interaction between nature and human presence. It serves as a visual testament to the inextricable link between our fondest memories and the places where we found solace and joy in the past. The artwork is about the eternal summer days of our childhood, where the warmth of the sun and the laughter of carefree playmates remain forever in our hearts.

I remembered that as a young girl I so much liked to cut images from magazines to paste them into school agendas, scrapbooks and even on my bedroom door. Add to this the fascination I always had for walls filled with old posters, flaking paint, scrappy billboards and weathered paint, it opened an unexpected door for completely new opportunities. Completely unintended I found a new way of working, I felt pleasurably and comfortably at home in. What started out as copying old walls with worn out posters has grown into many series of new visual storytelling. Not simply just eclecticism, but bringing together many seemingly incoherent story lines into one completely new story, my own personal story. Initially it lacked the one thing that is important to me, the transparency that normally only is possible with the use of watercolor. The unforgiving layering of transparent watercolors is a challenge I would not want to miss and after a lot of trial and error I finally succeeded in getting the collages as transparent as a watercolor. Every layer of paper, oil, acrylic, pencil, crayon, ballpoint, watercolor, ink, charcoal and whatever else I use, remains visible in the artwork. You can imagine it made me feel the queen of the ball !
