Well, I am back from vacation. Spent a week in P-town and it was great. Super weather, food and good times with my friends and family. I did a miniature watercolor yesterday of Race Point from memory. I know, that’s not what I posted. That’s because I think it needs some more tweaking. Of course, that’s not supposed to be the point of these miniatures – they are supposed to be spontaneous. But it just seemed a bit dull. It didn’t convey the feeling I felt on the beach. So here is a totally different watercolor. I started with a segment from an old piece. I drew my jagged design onto it and painted it in blue. I didn’t exactly stay in the lines, but just back from vacation I’m relaxed and that just doesn’t seem important. Life doesn’t always stay in the lines. I then painted a wash of yellow over the rest. I’m so glad I did. It made the entire piece bright and cheery. When I was looking at it I could imagine young children playing baseball that just broke a window. “RUN”!!!!! But that broken window is letting in acres of bright sunshine and lovely colors from the outdoors. I like to imagine the person whose window it is taking it all in stride and not getting angry or put out. Maybe the owner is an artist and takes a picture because the tableau is beautiful. Maybe the owner is an older neighbor who remembers baseball games he played as a youngster. My imagination can go on and on.
