Mostly art, but sometimes I wander...
Sharon -- I share the same summer doldrums, though I paint something daily ... just to paint. Dog days, I think ... hot,humid, too much work, no play ...or not enough play ... hoping for inspiration somewhere ... maybe we can run away somewhere?Even though you may not be inspired, this painting is stunning~! There is an aspect of light and freedom and splashiness that is simply outstanding! Let me know if you want to run somewhere!
I actually love this, Sharon! Nice.Fooling around is a good thing!
I think this is pretty fantastic for fooling around! Very atmospheric.And new supplies always seem to rev up my creative juices ... give it a try.
Shopping is always a hit with mee...especiall art supplies....this piece is GORGEOUS!!! No slump shown here! :)
This is truly gorgeous! I am inspired. I used to make small landscapes a dozen years ago when I first started. So interesting the way suggestion gives you hills, trees, valleys and the sea! I had forgotten how much I liked making these.
This is stunning, Sharon! You should fool around more often.
I love the light in this painting! I want to learn to be more loose and let the paint do it's ting withthe water on the paper and not try to control it so much.
This looks gorgeous Sharon.... keep playing... you've got something good going here!
Sharon, other than one sketch from a photo and drawing with Teri on Wednesday I haven't painted or drawn a darned thing. Your painting here makes me want to march upstairs and get out my watercolors. Lovely!
This is lovely, Sharon! I think it's wonderful! I wish I could just dash off something this beautiful!
wonderful lively sparkle on the water and the softness of the trees is lovely, Sharon. Beautiful.
This is very pretty. Just the place to run away to.
That's beautiful, Ma! Can I have that one too?Camas
This is a beautifully realized scene--the soft diffusion and the sparkling crackles of white! And, you stopped just in time: it's just right as it is! I'm going through a similar disconnectedness: can't decide what to paint, or how to paint, so doing nothing! I think it's the low following the high of the Virtual Sketch Date!
Camas, You are welcome to this, although it was painted on a piece of scrap paper, with a reject painting on the back. Dad will cut mats for all the paintings this week.
Thank you all! Leslie, When does the new virtual sketch date photo get posted?
Sharon,I wanted you to know that I am passing the Arte y Pico Award along to you for writing such an inspiring blog. Pop on over to my blog and scroll down to Arte y Pico Award. Great blog,and wonderful art, you're an inspiration to many!
This is a lovely landscape! I love this kind of work. My mind fills in what it needs to, to complete the painting for me! I love it!
wow. really nice painting. Beautifully atmospheric. I love the white paper bits showing through. Sometimes inspiration is just there and we don't know it. It takes alot of quietness to let it find you.
