The interesting thing to me this time around, looking at the brightly lit pics above and the deeply shadowed ones below, is the distinct difference it makes — having dappled or varying light!
Alternating degrees of light and dark, warm and cool, things I’ve been seeing folks like Dianne Mize talk about in her art tips and YouTube videos – I can see it happening more easily in nature, and it’s making it easier for it to all make more sense to me ☺️
It even happens inside, in our homes, our interiors!
No wonder my daughters like plants in their homes so much! 🪴
And below is another of my circa 2000 oil paintings where I mostly accidentally created a dappled light piece of art, lol! 😊
I’m very much hoping, with more consciousness to the matter now, I’ll be making new art, with this idea in place!
It makes wonder if my recent fondness for line art to accent and ground my watercolor work is really an off-shoot, or parallel, to my emerging fascination with dappled light, like in those pictured below for my post of work I’ve taken for the reopening of the Old Bakery & Emporium here in Austin —
I’ll guess we’ll see, as I try to find a way to merge the two interests : line work in watercolor & dappled light ♥️
Thanks so much everyone! Stay well! 🙏

- September 15, 2021 – Birds at Pfluger Bridge Austin @FineArtAmericaBirds at Pfluger Bridge Austin is an 11×14 oil painting I finished a little over 3 years ago, but never wrote up about individually on my blog. I realized this was the case when I tried to find my WordPress image from an older blog post to include in my most recent post; about birds of course 😊 Why I hadn’t done a post, announcing when I’d uploaded it to Fine Art America is simply that I….
- September 14, 2021 – Playing with 4K Video to Grab Still ShotsNow that we’ve had our bird feeder up a few months at our new location, we’ve come across a wider variety of birds (and other critters) and’ve been working at grabbing shots of birds in motion I might could use for sketches and such 🦅

Meaning I can’t believe, despite my half-century+ enchantment with impressionism, esp Monet & Renoir) I never came across it before! In fact, I’m still coming across new material; not to mention the staggering review of much of Monet’s art work!
- September 11, 2021 – “Fantasy Walk” : Figure Art on Light Molding Paste on Canvas, Calling it Done, Sorta….Developing this painting has been more lesson on do’s and don’t’s I think than of completing a finished work, though I also think I’m gonna have to call this one done and move on. Looking at the image sequence from top to bottom, working from finish back to my start, I can see several “things” I’d’ve done differently. Most obvious now is I shoulda left a….
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
