I’ve begun to think about Vermont again. It’s that time of year (plus not having been able to visit there for nearly 3 years, lol!) Soon our weather here in Austin, despite the terrible #TexasFreeze just last month, will go from sometimes warm, to warm, to hot, to really hot, nearly every day! Not that I want to anticipate the worst longest lasting season of the year here 😏 but, when I went to see which of my images was next in line to post about, working from earliest uploads to now on Fine Art America, this stretch of blue beauty very near to where my wife grew up in Burlington was there, smiling, waiting for me to accept the fact it’s there. Calm. Reflective, variegated. And blessed with interest from foreground to background. Just a little further to the right, along the same stretch of beach, years later, I captured the image below in my tweet – the light was different, a girl was peacefully practicing her sun salutations, arms raised to the sky, enjoying the same world years later. Some sensations, from within our own human time frames and perspectives, are exquisitely enduring ♥️

- September 25, 2021 – Walking in Dappled Light Study 1, #Watercolor on Paper, CompletedNot much difference between the previous post’s study version and the completed version above. As you can tell, from the 2nd duo sets of contrasts below, all I did was soften the upper slanting line separating red and white on the lady’s back. But for me, it….
- September 24, 2021 – New Most Viewed Image For the Week @FineArtAmerica, Ridges of Spring Light, #watercolor, painted late 2019I’ve recently been including Ridges of Spring Light in several of my blog posts about dappled light and masking fluid, not because it was meant to “be” dappled light, or that I used masking fluid creating it, though it does have three distinct areas of canvas (coated with absorbent ground to accept watercolors). No, Ridges of Spring Light contains a sense of dappleness, often created with masking fluid, and I used that image here to illustrate the idea that a variable sense of light sometimes just comes about, even in an abstract.
- September 23, 2021 – Walking in Dappled Light Study 1, #Watercolor on Paper, Masking Fluid RemovedThere’s a lot I like about how this looks with the masking fluid gone (removed prev night and slept on the shock of seeing the changes, lol!) – which doesn’t mean though I’m not looking at what to try to improve how I feel about this work 😊 Initially, 1st impression, I was determined to restore & “correct” some of the changes —
- September 22, 2021 – Walking in Dappled Light Study 1, #Watercolor on Paper; 1st Paint Lay-in with Masking FluidAt 9×12 on 140lb x watercolor paper, I was able to use my brushes fairly effectively where I wanted them, and applied some Turner masking fluid (with a thin palette knife) “fairly” easy. And yes, some foot proportions are off a bit, lol, and her back blouse almost looks like it’s the front, but all in not too bad toward my primary priority – quickly achieve some degree of dappling look. Once the masking fluid comes off though, it could be very different….
- September 21, 2021 – Initial Review of “Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art” by James NestorI’d been doing a day to day posting of a continuing study-sketch project with figures in a watercolor landscape and ran into a time roadblock – grandchild, groceries, fitness (walking, yoga, Essentrics), picking up line art to practice-paint at my printer, etc 😊 and wasn’t able to wiggle any more time to work on that project and write about it, so… I took a deep breath and picked up a book (virtually, via my Kindle Reader, lol!) The editorial reviews often mentioned this read like a novel & my intro and beginning pages already confirm that.
Thanks so much everyone! 😊
