Esther Tubbs is one of South Georgia/North Florida’s outstanding watercolorists. Her traditional transparent watercolors are magnificent; they reflect her mastery in handling the medium in its most traditional manner. Her work is never just photographic representation, but it rather reflects the spirit and sole of a person or place. Her superb sense of composition and use of color turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.
She delights in the use of pours to create a structural framework for paintings. These inspire forms, themes, and thought provoking ideas. Sometimes Esther’s pours are totally non-objective arrangements. Over these non-objective pours she adds flourishes of color and texture that bring charm, spontaneity and personality to the work.
In recent years Esther has been exploring a newer direction, interlacing her more traditional transparent watercolor with other opaque water media.
Esther is a profoundly competent artist who is never satisfied with the status quo, but rather is always expanding, changing, and moving forward with her art. She is an exceptional artist and an exceptional person.
I am a great admirer of Esther’s paintings and would highly recommend your adding an Esther Tubbs original to your collection.
