A Bit More

It's not a whole lot, but it is progress…besides, I thought I’d better post something or you'll think I abandoned ship (bad metaphor, I know).

  1. Lovely. Makes me wish I was there. You are very gifted. Thanks for sharing the process. Watercolor terrifies me! I'm an oil and acrylic - pentimento - painter. I'm looking forward to the next phase of this beautiful seascape.

  2. Sharon,
    Thanks for your kind words. This one is slow going, and I’m not feeling too confident about the outcome. I’m just going to keep working on it and hope for the best.

    I’ve tried acrylics and oils, but they feel so heavy to me. Funny where out comfort zones fall. I’ve thought of trying those mediums again, but painting already comes with a fair bit of anxiety for me. Guess I’m not one of those brave and daring artists…

    I’m looking forward to your progress, too…

  3. I am not an artist, so I feel like my comments are not noteworthy or that they somehow don't really count and I hesitate to leave one. Who cares what a non-artist thinks anyway? Yet, here I am jumping in. I think it is pretty amazing that most of the canvas is blue (water and sky) and it still has so much texture. That is pretty awesome. And that is all that the non-artist has to say other than keep at it!

  6. ' have been out of pocket for a day or two, but been checking in. This is going to be great. Kinda reminds me of a Hemingway harbor. I see my old blue truck sitting out there.. surely you realize..

  7. Michelle, thanks! And I do so love a metaphor—even if it's cliché!
    I hate to disappoint you and Deb, but the colors aren’t represented too well, here; they’re more muted in the actual painting, which I like far better. I’ve been working the sky pretty hard today (another term for overworking it), but it looks much better now. I’m starting to feel more positive about the overall painting. :)

    So, Glen, how did your truck get to Stonington, Maine? And if it’s yours, what’s the make, model and year? (a girl should know what she’s painting, after all!)
