"Panda #2" Watercolor Painting


Panda # 2 watercolor painting just finished this week measures about 12 X 15"...I gave him lots of bamboo to eat as well.

And so, my thought for today:

" If you have nothing else to do,
look about you and see if there isn't something close at hand
that you can improve! It may make you wealthy,
though it is more likely that it will make you happy."
....George Matthew Adams

"Giraffe" Watercolor Painting


This giraffe watercolor painting measures 5 X 7" ... I'm not completely sure that I am pleased with this background color.

A thought for today, courtesy of Dr. Seuss:

"I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat.
I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

Sunflowers in Blue Vase Watercolor Painting

Sunflowers in a blue vase watercolor is an 8 X 10" painting finished last evening. A little different style watercolor for me, more impressionistic, maybe.

"...I wish some power would touch my ear
With magic touch, and make me hear
What all the blossoms say, and so
I might know what the winged things know.
I'd hear the sunflower's mellow pipe,
'Goldfinch, goldfinch, my seeds are ripe!'
....Louise Driscoll

Park in China Watercolor Painting

Park in China watercolor painting measures 8 X 10" and is done on Arches 140 pound paper. I had a lot of trouble doing this painting which is from a Wet Canvas weekend drawing event reference photo in trying to get the mist effect, so I'm disappointed in the outcome. I practically washed the whole thing out and started over again.

And so my thought for today is on perfection (or the lack of it!):

Imperfection clings to a person,
and if they wait till they are brushed off entirely,
they would spin for ever on their axis, advancing nowhere.
....Thomas Carlyle

Black and White Angel Fish Watercolor Painting


This is a 12 X 16" original watercolor painting of what I think is an angel fish that I just finished. I took the photo reference at the Rainforest Cafe in Florida.

Thought for today:

"You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go.”
...Dr Seuss

North Light House, Block Island, Watercolor Painting


SOLD

The north lighthouse on Block Island, new watercolor painting I finished last night measures 12 X 16", done on Arches 140 pound paper. It's a brisk 30 minute walk to this serene looking spot over a rocky shoreline with ocean on one side and a brackish pond on the other and wildlife sanctuary, so quite deserted. The pond is framed by sand dunes where wild rose bushes protect the dunes. This day the surf was high and strong from a hurricane passing by in the ocean, and between the pounding surf and the scrub area of the sand dunes where it's not possible to walk - was very small. Once I got to this spot, it dawned on me - was it high tide or low tide? - so I went right back and I realized as I headed back the tide was in fact coming in.

Thought for today is from Proverbs 25:3~~

"Like the horizons for breadth and the ocean for depth, the understanding of a good leader is broad and deep."

Crescent Beach, Block Island Watercolor Painting

This 10 X 16" watercolor of Crescent Beach, Block Island, was just finished last night from a reference photo taken in a week of plein air painting at this beautiful island. This is the spot where the ferry arrives.

My thought for today is a beautiful one from Max Lucado from "Cure for the Common Life". He references the Scripture from Romans 11:16 "Everything comes from (the Lord); everything exists by his power and is intended for his glory." and shares this thought:

"We serves as canvases for his brush stroke,
papers for his pen,
soil for his seeds,
glimpses of his image."
