Something completely different from me.

A commission

This painting was indeed completely different for me to do. I have never done any lettering, and I have decided that I don’t care to ever do it again. The grapes, wine glass, bottle and wine were something I have never tackled on canvas with acrylic paints before either. The reflections on the glass and motion of the pouring wine were fun to recreate. The purchaser gave me the words and a vague idea of what she had in mind and then pretty much gave me free reign to do what I thought best. To quote, “do that thing you do”. Admittedly I did enjoy taking her idea and recreating something out of that. Because I had never done anything like this before I gave her a screeching good deal. Lesson learned, every painting takes just as long for me to do with just as much thought going into it. Each and every painting is special to me. And most importantly I have a reputation to uphold. I try to do my very best every time. Although grateful for this opportunity and pleased to do this for a friend, screeching good deals shouldn’t happen.

“Sunset on Mara”

Sunset on Mara

Sunset on Mara. This painting has a lot of meaning for me. It is emotionally charged. Firstly it is the first painting since the death of our youngest son. Secondly it is based on a photo that I took the evening after his death. I could see a bird taking flight in the cloud formation. It was a perfect evening and a spectacular sunset. A beautiful memory to have and hold. Ergo it had to be memorialized on canvas by my hands, brushes and imagination.

World Watercolor Month Days 28 and 29

World Watercolor Month Days 28 and 29. I invited my old friends to join me in the festivities. “Ollie” was the first to arrive. I hope “Gretchen” arrives soon.

We are in the midst of a heatwave here in BC but that hasn’t deterred the flowers from thriving. While out for my walks I have been spotting all manner of beauties, including black eyed susan’s. Thankfully not my namesake but I recently did have two black eyes from a bad fall. Good thing I heal quickly.

World Watercolor Month Days 24 and 25

World Watercolor Month Days 24 and 25. Another two cards created. While out for my walk yesterday I came across some honeysuckle. I couldn’t resist trying to duplicate it’s blooms and gorgeous color. The lighthouse is my imagination. Since we are in the middle of a heat wave perhaps I was dreaming of cooling ocean breezes and waves. I will NOT complain about sun and warmth. It was just a week or so ago that we were huddled under blankets trying to stay warm and dry.
