Just thought I would post a few of my paintings here. Not trying to brag or anything, just wanted to let you all know that I am keeping myself busy. I paint every night. Every single night!
Quincy is a small town, but it is a very eclectic and culturally sophisticated town. Every year there is a Juried Art Show, and the members of the local Arts Clubs and public are invited to submit their work. On a lark I had submitted two paintings last year in November. Just because! I knew very well that I was a nobody in the rich artistic membership of the town. However, I about dropped my dentures (J/K) when I received a letter that both my paintings were selected and will be viewed by the judge who came from another state.
So this year, I thought I would do the same. I know that just because my paintings were selected last year, it doesn’t mean that they will be selected again this year. But hope and greed go cheek by jowl, me thinks! So here are the three paintings I have submitted this year. Let me know what you all think.
The first one is a watercolor painting of a bird sitting on the eggs in a nest in the fall, as seen by the color of the leaves. I painted this month or so ago.
The second painting also is a watercolor of a cheetah hidden in the bushes, almost telling me, “I see you!” I painted this also around May or June of this year.
The third painting, is a sad depiction of the fires in California. A photo was published in the local newspaper. I had sat at the breakfast table and couldn’t take my eyes off that photo. So I decided to paint it and titled it Despair. Also water color.
The next few paintings are just something that appeal to me, flowers and leaves and birds. This one of the pigeon hangs in my studio downstairs. It looks as if the pigeon is asking, “did somebody knock”? I kind of like the bird droppings on the ledge and the sill.
These leaves I picked from the driveway, and etched around them. For contrast i added some silver foil to the painting, which makes the back ground shine
Finally, I love to paint flowers. I painted this a couple of nights back. M thought I should have submitted this on for the Art Show. But I know the caliber of the paintings and artists that display their work there, and my work is absolutely nothing compared to what there will be.
I am also trying to get back to writing a little.
The colors are the same,
with same beginnings and
of my dreams and
of your dreams.
We will walk together
hand in hand always.
seems like this meeting
and this symbiosis
of you and me, was predestined.
Life of my life,
your sorrows I own now
I give you my joys in return
so your beautiful eyes
can dazzle my world.
We shall dream together
have our own beginnings
share our one destination
of love and passion
to be your life and give of my life!
