Untitled


watercolor
18 x 12.5

Well its been three months since my last post. I don't know if I'm more surprised that it's been that long or that it hasn't been longer. Untitled pretty much wraps up the last three months though.

I finished this a few days ago, at least I think it's finished, and I don't have the slightest idea what to title it. That's usually a result of not having a clear idea of what I was trying to do in the first place. Seems to be a lot of that going around these days. "Just do it." Nice bumper sticker but maybe we should give things a little thought before we jump in with both feet. But I don't really want to go down that road today. I'm not really sure what road I want to go down today. See, still untitled.

Anyway, even though this isn't exactly a Christmas image (poor thing would freeze something off wearing that around here today), I hope everyone has a good holiday season. And I'd like to thank everyone that has dropped by, especially those that have taken the time to comment. It really means a lot to me. And a special thanks to all my models (did you recognize Linda from the last silverpoint post?) Where would I be without you?

Lovely image. How about Spring Song for a title? I'm with you on the Just Do It phenomenon. Maybe Let's Think About It might be better for us all?

Thanks. It will probably wind up with something like Spring Song assuming I even bother to title it. Realistically it will probably get stuffed in a portfolio and never see the light of day again. Not a whole lot of demand these days.

Another stunner, Dave. The way you capture fabric is mindboggling to me. It's good to see you working again.:) Best wishes for an inspired and productive 2010.

Thanks, it's not exactly what I saw originally but then it never is. It seems that maybe I have a few left in me after all. I have no idea why but I absolutely love doing drapery nowadays, especially white or light colored drapery. It probably has something to do with the way light bounces around in it.

We'll see what the new year brings. I hope you have a good one.

Modest dress, foliage in the hair, playing a flute, gives this a mythical feel. I look at this piece and think of Pan. He could be hiding in the background and she’s calling to him.

Good to see you back Jane.
