well it was quite a day with the gulls crying and diving to keep us from their young hatchlings....but I persevered ,hung in there, kept painting..this was the first study since the light had been rebuilt and the color of the trim had been changed to white after 100 years of red? anyway I sat in the sand painting...and had a wonderful time of it....22x30" watercolor on 140lb hot pressed Arche paper
Now you see what you're missing? Block Island at it's finest....an old outhouse and an incoming storm...do you see the cat crossing the yard? the gallery owner thought that it looked like a tiger...well I told her it was a cat, which indeed was a little tiger....so the question is, do I get rid of the cat or keep it? Swimming is great and I had alot of fun painting this wonderful BI view... oil on canvas 24x36"
I painted this at a friend and students house one fine afternoon...could not resist the watering can....my friend came out while I was painting and told me she had gotten it from the gardener at Sing Sing prison" They don;t make them like that any more." she said...I just loved the colors and the raised beds filled with growing things....
This painting is still being worked on, cause I always see something that needs to be changed...on going...a mean not big changes but subtle ones....the garden needs some weeding, planting and rearanging I think....oil/canvas 30x30"
Here is a country gentleman's laundry hanging out to dry on a fine summer's day...the sky lights give it away, that is , this is no back country farm house....it was once....as I look at this painting I think maybe I will remove the skylights...they do not add to the image...what do you think?oil on canvas 20x24"
