Rare Pond


To all my blog friends I would like to apologize for being less than accessible these past few weeks. Life can occassionally put one on a tac that demands that all free time be invested wisely. Either you go along with it or suffer through the hours with a cloud of guilt that hovers constantly over your head. Truth is, there just aren't enough hours in the day for me right now and I may be struggling through some issues regarding personal discipline. However, I think I see a light at the end of the tunnel and, provided its not a train coming at me, which most likely it is, I will be able to spend a little more time with my wonderful bloggy friends, whom I miss more than they probably miss me.

Here is a simple little 11 x 14 I tackled last week in fits and starts and then, as usual, abandonded it like all paintings are. Hope you enjoy it. I will get around the bloggy block and pay you all a visit very soon. Ciao!

Apologies accepted, Argos :)

When life says: take a break from something, we must follow the advice.

What is "for real" remais and gives you time to breath.

Don't worry, there is no train coming at you ;)

No matter how busy you must have been, your painting is as great as always.

Line- thanks for the visit and the kind words! Yes, I still visit the Sartorialist but have not commented for some time it is true. I guess I have come to view fashion in silence, but I still love his work.

Hope you are well!

¡Saludos a mis tres amigos Mauricio, Checha y Daniela!

¡Está bien tener noticias de todos ustedes!

He estado tan ocupado últimamente y lamento que yo no pudiera sentarme sólo con todos ustedes y disfrutar de un poco de té o el vino.

¡Bendiciónes!

Annon..aka B....

Winslow Homer?

He da man!

Seriously, I love his landscapes and how he tackled watercolor later in life.

I think I did most of the rambling as I was grossly overserved. Ciao!

Hi Argos,

Beautiful, I love the blues. Those violet-ey tones are my favourite. I recognise the light blue you use in your sky, you use it often.

I use a software package to make digital models of what an orebody (which is a collection of minerals, hopefully economic enough to mine) might look like. I use that blue colour a lot, we call it Colour31. I have a convention of using blue for the top surface and green for the bottom (the grass is green, the sky is blue). But my pictures are nowhere near as beautiful as yours!

I move into my new house on Friday and I will unpack my things. I bought a painting just before I left and hadn't even taken it out of the wrapping paper. It'll be like Christmas all over again!

Hope you have dodged that train and get your days under control, and glad to see that it hasn't stopped you from painting and posting!

Take care of what you need to in your life. We will all be here when you are able to get back to the blogsphere.

Lovely painting - I love the reflection.
