Adan’s Fine Art America Images # 23 – Sunset Dock (Vermont) , Uploaded 04.15.16

This begins a nice series of shots I took in Vermont various times my wife and I’ve been there. I love visiting her home state, so much beauty, and so many independent minded folks like I often find here in Texas, and I suspect populate our country and the world more than most of us realize.

I love the softness of the deep grey blues, resting on reflections of last light. It’s not a good-bye, it’s merely a pause, yes more than a respite. There’s a touching of the unknown-ness we live within, often forgetting it’s there, but with faith it’s ok. We’re still connected. That – we can feel. And even see some of the mystery marshaled around us. Except that we’re impossibly not alone 💕

The location for the above shot is the Burlington Waterfront 😊

Below is one of my fav digital creations of what’ll be as familiar a scene to Vermonters as it’s rare to us here in Texas 😊 – snow and long lasting cold!

About my “Adan’s Fine Art America Images” Series
Updated 08.25.20

After hitting a pause the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown in mid-March with Image # 12, I’m determined to resume and (lesson learned during virus-lockdown) take my time 😊

My goal is a new image each week, still maintaining uploading from my beginning with Fine Art America (FAA) in early 2016. At that pace, plus uploading new images each week or more, that’ll keep me busy for awhile ☺️

I’m hoping that, besides chronicling my uploaded images to FAA, this will also give both myself and the reader/viewer info & insights into my creative journey. Thanks so much everyone!

  • January 22, 2022 – Rethinking (re-engineering?) How I Post About Images I Upload to #FineArtAmerica
    My most emerging challenge as I ramp up being able to and wanting to paint more often – each day if possible – is time. Not a big surprise for all the folks with lots of interests and/or commitments, even for us 70+ year olds, lol! Though, surprisingly, just as difficult to navigate the demands and siren calls of attention in our lives. Kinda nice though, that kind of problem has persisted from when….
  • January 21, 2022 – New 16×20 Inch #Acrylic Upload @FineArtAmerica – Healthy Vines Happy Hearts
    A relatively simple work with a slightly more complex arrangement of paint application than my usual. That’s a mouthful, lol! But pretty accurate in term of my process! 😊 First, I laid in a faint yellow base, a mix of watercolor and acrylic. Next I laid over a….
  • January 20, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 2
    As mentioned in my prev post, my then problem and now radical solution in re to a painting I’d struggled with, done the most I felt I could, and was still quite unhappy with, began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, re listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d wanted to add a violet toned painting to one of my ongoing series, one involving 12×24 panoramic monochromatic impressionist abstract work. It began well enough, with….
  • January 19, 2022 – How I Applied Dianne Mize’s Art Tip, The Visual Path, To My Work-In-Progress, Part 1
    It began after reading then reblogging Dianne Mize’s most recent art tip, The Visual Path, plus some reading I’ve been doing in The Adjacent Possible, about listening to one’s creative needs and acting on them. I’d already begun a new violet lay-in, destined, I thought, to be called Violet Impressionist Abstract 1; all along the lines of my other mostly-or-all monochromatic impressionist abstract work I’ve posted about ( my red and blue samples further down ).
  • January 18, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Working the Painting Language – The Visual Path, via Dianne Mize
    Dianne’s continuing series of tips and samples of painting’s language of line and shapes and so much more, including, as per this reblog of her most current post, The Visual Path, have been a source of inspiration for me for quite a while now, and this is no exception. She provides not only the 2 examples in my header, but an entirely different style image, one from one of my favorite painters, John Singer Sargent, and ties it to the two simpler – yet in principle – similar images top of the page.

  1. […] times my wife and I’ve been there. My previous posting of my Fine Art America images was a similar scene set only a bit earlier, angled only slightly differently, both beautiful, yet distinct…. Not that sunset / sunrise moments aren’t like this world round, the little I’ve seen of other […]

    • I never thought of that but ya’ll are by the ocean (water) too (like Burlington to Lake Champlain)! But with Pacific Ocean sunsets! From our very short too long ago stay in Costa Rica I gotta say those Pacific Ocean sunsets are incredible! 🌅
