A little moment from the dock.
Have a lovely sunny day XOXOXO
I am thrilled to be a part of Seth’s new book!! He is a great artist and a fantastic writer! And one of the nicest and most organized folks I know!
The Mixed-Media Artist: Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams from Over 40 Amazing Artists Seth Apter
I am featured on his blog today!
Did you know that Constable, the amazing painter, called the act of painting outdoors “skying”
They say he was like a weather man, that he studied and understood the sky better than anyone. He did paint some amazing clouds!!
Skying, I love that term.
The nicest gal came by the studio a few weeks back and recorded an oral history about my experiences as an artist living in Central Florida, for the Orlando Library Memory Project.
Thank you Jane Tracy!! Xoxox
Ps. Note to self, don’t say “you know”
so much… Or “like”
Not so much time on the dock this week. I found myself on a new tangent painting birds.
At this moment I am heading to do a show in St. Louis, and part of my booth will have these birds. And a huge piece called Reasons to become an Artist. With a collage of 40 paintings under a giant graphic….
ANyhoo, have a great day!
Paint or do what ever it is that makes you happy. Xoxo
Mmmmmmmm, sometimes if you are not drawing it, or painting it, you just have to soak in it.
I heard great painter Clyde Aspevig
Say you should really get to know your subject. Sometimes observing it can be just as important as painting it
Sounds good to me!!
Have a great weekend!
La la la
In an obvious attempt to procrastinate going to the studio to work on my show deadline, I told myself I would just do a few quick sketches off the dock.
Here is a handful of observations:
Lucky Turtle count 2
Great blue heron low fly by 1
There are a ridiculous amount of wind patterns happening (quite lovely) I lost count at 788,992,492..
I need an eraser
The sound of a squirrel tickle fight in the Cypress tree is amusing
Drawing clouds is not as easy as you might think….
Ps. I noticed myself singing “I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now, la la la, and still somehow, la la la, I really don’t know clouds…at alllllllllll…
