Joseph O'Sickey described his process saying that "every mark had to have its room and clarity.”
Joseph O'Sickey spent much of his life and career in Northeast Ohio, where he took classes at the Cleveland Museum of Art as a child and later taught at the Cleveland Institute of Art, among other institutions. This watercolor is one of many that the artist made, seeing the medium as well suited for his creative experimentation with color and form. O'Sickey favored vivid tones, such as the bright blue seen here, taking inspiration from European artists such as Henri Matisse.
