I'm back, rested, revived. My week at the lake feeds my soul and this one was especially good because in addition to being able to swim daily and work on my Flea Market Series, I took the time to do some experimenting. Today I'm posting the Flea Market pieces I finished. Then I'm going to play a little catch-up. A couple of weeks I missed posting so this week I'm going to post a couple more times. My experiments were in watercolor monoprints and as I get them scanned I'll post them.
I also finished another boat.... I seem to be narrowing my boat images down to old rowboats. I do love them. This one belonged to a friend and when I saw it I knew I had to paint it.
I wonder sometimes after I've painted something like this boat, did I concentrate too hard on the subject and not pay enough attention to the design. I wonder because I'm so enthralled with my subject that I know that's all I'm thinking about. I love the water and love to be in it or on it. And as much as I love going fast on the water (speedboats) I also love the quiet of rowing an old boat or kayaking on calm water.
