Hello and happy April!
I'm presenting to you a painting that had quite a flurry of acceptance. I had posted it on Facebook and described the painting process of using granulating pigments...the ones that leave a very cool 'residue' or scratchy appearance when it dries. This comes in handy when watercolor painting rough subjects...like those in this painting: pinecone, rocks, and dried leaf.
Pretty effective, actually.
But look....there is a broken and purely smooth robins egg. (Transparent color and very different looking from the rest of the painting). It's broken. Did it fall out of the nest? Did the robin take flight and it's been blown out? It's different; a focus ,with a story.
I also have a focus...with a story.
I work on my paintings and feel a deep connection that I will finish it to my heart's content. I trust this will happen. I do. And it does.
I have recently been completing my website and must tell you that I placed blind faith that I would figure it out...and I did. This actually just makes me a bit more gutsy.
I am initiating my blog with my painting "TRUST" for personal reasons...this has been a lesson in trusting myself to take the steps, especially when I didn't know what would/could happen. I bumped into that Procrastination...BUT I took action. My actions caused reactions and before I knew it... I completed a successful painting, have documented it on a website, and have written about my success and feelings on, my new blog!
I am an observer of life and love to paint what I see with watercolors.
