As a kid, my only experience of watercolor painting was what I like to refer to as "Mom Art"—floral still-life paintings and serene landscapes I viewed in small Midwestern resort town galleries. I wasn't what you'd call a fan of the medium. 

And then I saw Michael Gaughan's (definitely not in one of those afore-mentioned galleries). An extraordinary talent with a keen sense of humor, he's my kind of artist.
