Jan 24 2010
This will be my first post on this blog that I have been trying to get started for about a year now. I am an artist working in Water Color and Oils at the moment. I have always been an artist, memories of drawing are some of my oldest. I was a professional artist once before but then drifted away only to return now at midlife to my paintbox and drawing table. I paint what I know and what I know is the landscape, towns and people of of the midwest where I lived my entire life. I like the light here and the skies, the ever changing skies! Just today with a strong warm front that had come in over night they were wonderful for late January. This time of year it normally either bright and clear or dark and gray with that nasty permacloud that just settles in and refuses to leave. The light of a clear winter day is a sight to behold for an artist as it is unlike the light of any other time of year. Years past I would sometime wait for it to make a subject "just right" for painting. Well enough talk, here are some recent Water Colors.
