Artist’s Musings

a pair of geese flew by; outside my studio window; i’m glad elephants don’t fly

End of summer paintings

I had been a bit idle, and yet actively churning inside my head. That is reimagining how I see colours in front of me and still convey a sense of the place and the moment. Lately I have been going out to paint a few hours before sunset. (Of course, around the corner.) This makes a fun challenge for me because I have to quickly think how I want to convey the place and the moment with whatever colours I have at hand before the mosquitoes have me for dinner. Sometimes if I wasted time on irrelevant details I find myself working in quickly fading light, and I’d have to quickly make my decisions and move on. Sometimes that could be a good thing because such a predicament forces me to not dwell on the irrelevant and quickly move on with the important details. Such as the overall composition and colour scheme.

In a world where you can be anything, be kind. And gladden someone’s heart with lotsa zero calorie eye-candies, but please do not eat the paint. Represented by the Station Gallery.
