Group 16: Old Experiments Not Yet Cataloged for Sale

Below is the sixteenth  group of watercolors that I painted for earlier posts in this blog. The paintings below are about gesture and hands, particularly as regards my low functioning, autistic and nonverbal brother, Mike. Please see the original posts for the back story and inspiration of each painting.
