Photogenic Watercolors

My friend and mentor Jack Welpott, who passed away just over a year ago, was a talented painter as well as a great photographer. He referred to some of his images that emphasized line as "photogenic drawings", meaning drawings generated by photographic means. So I'll call this series "photogenic watercolors" in homage and remembrance of Jack.
