This is another painting from that day but down on the beach instead of looking downwards.
So I hardly know what to think about everything that’s going on. And I hesitate to post…and yet, I feel, I want to continue to add beauty to our crazed world. I felt such joy when I was painting these beautiful flowers. There is so much beauty around us. Why do people focus on hate? It just does not make sense to me.
These were painted in the same nursery where I painted the sunny table and chairs. All I did was turn my easel around. I’d had a wonderful lunch that was prepared with love by the organizers and then came back to paint again. It was a memorably wonderful day. I painted this almost exactly a month ago. Recent jury duty just really took a toll on my creativity…Hope to start back up soon.
From the morning of the last day at Descanso last week….seems so long ago.
Waves aren’t easy, but kind of fun…and I love the color of the under part.
Here’s the painting from Leo Carillo yesterday…it had some rocky moments…okay, that’s a terrible pun…I admit it. The sun was shining on the water and making everything look blindingly white by the end at around 4. I wish I could’ve stayed into the late afternoon but I was too exhausted. Hope I get back sooner than the amount of time it took since my last Leo Carillo painting.
This is from a photo. The instructor said he liked the freedom of my energy…which is a nice compliment…later he compared me to Picasso…not sure if he meant that as a compliment…but I’ll take it as one.
From a lovely photo taken during a trip to Barcelona by whoever was with the lady in red… that inspired me to make it into a painting…I love the contrast of the red with the neutral background, the feel of sunlight, the way the face blends in to the sunlit wall…the shapes of the dress, hat, plant…an aesthetically pleasing timeless moment in time.
