Watercolor Words and Wanderings

Today I want to share with you “the ones that got away”. I was reading somewhere about how each work is kind of like a child. For me each painting represents a portion of my life- sort of like a those photos that capture a flower opening. When I look at my art many times I have flashbacks to the day- I can even remember what I ate. Some paintings represent periods of growth, change and new beginnings and others remind me of pain and tribulations. They all have memories and some times it is had to let them go…mostly I have given my work away. I have sold a few but I am just getting to the point where I have even tried to sell my work.

Here are a few more…

Here is one more…pardon the bad pics- my camera is out of town 😉 The little girl skipping was donated to Turning Points Network to use as the front of a card to help raise money to end domestic and sexual violence. The other two are this weeks attempt at live model – week 7.

Below is what I have been working on this week.

 

On the media this week- see Open Studio-WGBH and I would LOVE to post that episode for you but the website is a bear… I really enjoyed the piece about  Gustav Caillebotte. I remember playing Masterpiece with my family and his most famous work Paris Street, Rainy Day was one of the paintings in the game. What I was most interested in was their coverage of his quote everyday paintings these were apparently controversial. I wonder what will be said of my work-pedestrian?

Next weekend brings another workshop with Robert J. O’Brien– YAY!

-Until next week- Peace Out- Bec

  1. I love your watercolours, Becky. My favourite is your ‘Study of a Winter Scene’. I can relate to your comment about each work being like a child as funnily enough I made a similar comment in my most recent post! I look forward to seeing more of your artwork.
