Painting Delayed, Doggie Sitting Here I come

P1220753.JPGpainting #1 Remembered landscape

The painting above is from a memory of a scene that I have been painting over and over again. It is actually at the North Yuba river but you wouldn’t know it by the way I simplify and abstract the elements.

I will be taking a short hiatus from painting while I am doggie sitting my Granddog. We have many plans for hiking, playing, watching tv, catching up with my reading, making new doggie friends. I am thinking about taking my art supplies but it might be too much of a hassle to take my watercolor equipment. I might do some research and take art books to study, we’ll see.

I am undecided about this one, it is difficult to make sense of the rapids in this photo but in reality it is far better. I think that there is conflict about the focal area. But I do like the mood, let’s end on a positive note, right?

Another one, I did these in quick succession, hoping to thrust me into some imaginary land, creative muse on the mark, get set go mood.

Oh I wished that I could marry up the photo to my actual painting, I am very hard critic with my paintings but this one is beaming bright in my heart!

This one I have yet to make some sense of various areas. I lost distinction of the river, I’ll work with it to get it to come alive.

I have no idea what this will be, who knows? I am not worried, I might get a sky or a landscape or both by the time I am finished with it. I wanted to include it just because I wanted to stress a point that sometimes a painting can be one that evolves over time. I might let it sit for a while and work on it once I get back to my studio. Or, I might turn it over and paint on the other side.

Until next Saturday, Happy Painting!!

  1. Beautiful work Margaret. That last one is especially stunning for me – it resembles a typical eddy or fragment of a fast-flowing stream. Now where in the world could you have seen that? πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Fritz, what is interesting with that last one is that I turned it around and found that I liked the orientation better, I thought perhaps it needed something more to finish it. As always with my abstracts I like to turn it around looking for another vantage. I found that it is complete and has the impact that I wanted and get this, still looks like a flowing river. I’ll post it soon, once I get back to the grind.
