There’s actually something on the easel??? Yeah, I know- sorry. Anyway, I went on this fabulous train ride with friends and the Autumn colors were coming out. This, of course, lent itself to photographs. That started greasing the wheels and the paint brushes came out last night for a little while. (The mountain looked like someone had poured golden paint over it like topping on ice cream.)

Not sure where it will go from here but ………….

Update: Photo 2 shows progress………. hmmmm maybe………..

Still more progress. Sometimes I find it humorous at how these things unfold. Stay tune, see what happens next.

Rather be at the Beach

This is what I got up to this morning. Well, that certainly corrals me for the day, no sense in testing the driving skills of other drivers. So, I stayed in and puttered around all day.

But this is where I’d rather be.


Watercolor… still

As I puttered around the house this afternoon, I kept walking past this watercolor. It just seemed to need more, so I put a little more intense color to it as well as things further in the background. I was just going to add it to the original post but the program had other ideas.

Maybe I will just start a new one.

Today I saw a pastel by Tyrus Wong who drew for Disney for a long time (he died December 30, 2016 at age 106-he was brought from China by his father at age 9 in 1920)… anyway, this pastel I saw had teal color and a wispy feel to it and at the end of the day I decided to pull out the watercolor and paper. My intent was to find that same feel but the paint took a different direction and this was the result. I may or may not do more to it, only time will tell.

Funny how a word can inspire……..

This evening has been interesting. For the past few months, I’ve been really focused on the things that have to be done. None of which had anything to do with art or music. This evening I not only pulled out the paint brushes but I also pulled out my guitars. Sure was nice.

One of my readers mentioned mountains so here is a shot at that. Thanks!

Still in a slump, but at least an effort was made… sorta.

Okay, so a little explanation is in order. This was just a little experimentation of the laying of color with different brushes and flow of water on the paper. No specific representations. 2016 has been a year of much change and grief so this “slump” has been the result of that. Hopefully, all this will pass and something good will come. Until then, thanks to everyone who stops by Quiet Eloquence!
