Up To No Good, 11x17 Oil

A little blurry - I will try to replace it on the blog with a sharper photo. Today began with the SUN (we think... we haven't seen it in so long we're not sure...) and soon the western horizon started with a line of clouds, which are now forming the thunderheads that will douse us with rain this afternoon. I was thinking Colin Page again, trying to get the most out of his workshop. I used decisive brushstrokes and looked for nuances and color changes in every shape. Also his sparkle in the water, with a light touch, of many shades of white (yellow-white, rose-white, green-white, blue-white). As the winds pick up the sailboats are having a rough time of it, but this morning was beautiful.

And Paco slept against my ankle so I couldn't move away (or back) without him knowing it. Even though he was too hot and I had to keep wetting him. Pin It

  2. Really lovely, Kelley - there is so much beautiful nuance, at first I thought this could be a very large canvas! Give Paco a hug for me, he is so darn cute. When I paint, I have to step around all three of mine, like a game of Pug Twister. : )

  4. after seeing the original, I have to say the photo doesn't even capture the full effect... and maybe it should be a very large canvas!
