SOLDThis week's Safari (Thursday) was held on a day that was billed to be a disaster in terms of weather. 3 of us boldly went ahead and re-visited the rocks at Beavertail Lighthouse in Jamestown. We were steeled for blistering heat. What we got was FOG, and, man it was chilly!!! The lighthouse itself had fog drifting around it, so my first inclination was thwarted, as I wanted to take a run at the white stucco walls and red roofs.
But Carole pointed out the gorgeous sea-green spot in the water among the crashing waves - ah! That's what I had to paint. Strangely enough what I enjoyed MOST about this painting was the rocks - they seemed to take form on their own, and the lovely colors showed through.
One of those days when life give you lemons.... and you make lemonade!
*Oh, yes, my new easel withstood whipping wind without blowing over the cliffs this time (yup, rocks in the trash bag, and the backpack clipped onto it as an anchor!). I foolishly tucked about 50 business cards in a baggie under my turp container... nowhere to be found when I returned from checking out my students' work... Moby Dick, if you see them, you can drop them at my house!Pin It
