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.

Mountain Sun

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!

Sometime back, I ran across some drawings that I did as a youth. When I first saw this particular page my first reaction was “who did this?” ’cause I thought it was kinda cool. Then I remembered it back in 1978. Me, my cousin and my best friend were sitting around doodling and drawing each other. My cousin actually saved the pages hence the reason I have it now.

Anyway, it was funny to me how symmetrical this was. (today I don’t think I ever even think about symmetry)symetry002


Sea of Turmoil

sea of turmoil

Bet you thought I dropped off the face of the earth!

Sorry, been a tough year. This three panel painting in oil holds some representation of things over the past 8 or 9 months.

Thanks for your patience and thank you for coming by!
