Here is another one of the minis that I did during the wintertime this year. My Pop really liked this one.
That’s a question that I’ve been asking myself lately. I’ve not done much in the “art” field. Been a busy Spring and Summer with other things.
During the wintertime, I was piddling around with watercolor. I did a couple of medium sized pieces and several miniatures. I thought I would share them with my readers…… just not all at once.
Here’s one of the larger ones.
As you know, I am not an oil paint fan. But I still do it from time to time. Last year I told my son that I would do a painting for him similar to one he saw in a store.
So, I began with the task of finding a large enough canvas that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. Check! Next, I painted the whole thing gray. After that dried I began the process of figuring out how to lay it out and give it some drama and meaning. I looked at a lot of photographs dealing with the theme of the highway leading off into the horizon.( If you get a chance, go check out Tau Zero , this guy is spectacular! )
So far, this is as far as I have gotten…… stay tuned for more!
At long last I have completed some projects that I have been working on for an extended period of time…..sometimes things just don’t wanna get done.
Here is a photograph of a piece I call Million Mile Reflections. My subject was a victim of Alzheimer’s. Such a tragedy. Anyway, I was inspired by the look in his eyes, both before and after the ravages of the disease. I’m always amazed by what a person can see in another person’s eyes.
Thank you all again for coming by. Please come again soon to see what else crops up on Quiet Eloquence!
This morning I met one of my friends for coffee at a local coffee shop. We both noticed an art piece hanging near our table. Really nice colors. The more we looked and talked about it the more I felt like going home and getting out the brushes.
This piece started out completely different than the end result. Here is a photo of it. I’m calling it “Into The Light”.
