Hmmm

Water and Sky
18 x 24, pastel on Wallis Museum


I'm busy painting, but not painting much worth showing.

Granted, I don'l live on the water now (bummer), but the memory of it is sharp. I'm awfully glad you let this one by. It take me right there.

Sometimes the not shown ones are the ones from which we learn the most.

I beg to differ--if this is one of your recent works it is WELL worth showing! WOW! The pallet and movement are -WOW! one of my favourites!

Kvan..are you directing that Hmmm at this painting? I love the energy in it and the semi-abstractness too...Well worth "showing"! If I have a truly awful result (which is often enough--lol) I put up a sketch instead! I'm sure everyone is onto me! hahhaa.

Oh, I can see how I wrote with ambiguity and that led to your nice comments. The "dogs" I've painted are oil still lifes, maybe I should re-name them "dead lifes" because they are not worth showing.

This pastel has some good things about it. Thank you for noticing and commenting. I like the abstraction, simplicity, and sense of big-ness.

Thanks! Water is such an interesting subject!

Yes this is worth showing! You were a delightful spirit at our party. I think this painting shows it.

Kitty! It was a fun afternoon of painting and fun. I must need to have more silliness in my life because I was in rare form.
