January 31, 2014 - Carden Beach Condominums


Painting with a “SHOW ME STATE OF MIND”….
It is always fun when an Artist can talk about the philosophy behind his or her art.  However, what really is awesome is to be at a Friday paint-out and see how the Artist interprets and paints the view.

ART WITH A PASSION... 
There are times when we compare ourselves to others, when we're unsatisfied with our work, when we question why we're even striving to create a piece of art.   But there's one thing that can keep artists from giving up, from putting away their tools of the trade and succumbing to the average life of those who don't partake in something that creates discussion, beauty, or personal satisfaction:  IT IS PASSION!!!!!   I don't know about you, but I am nothing if I'm not passionate. I'm not a great artist by any means, and I even hesitate to call myself one. But others do, and I accept that with humble satisfaction…
So just keep painting, follow your passion and we will see you next Friday.

There are times when we compare ourselves to others, when we're unsatisfied with our work, when we question why we're even doing it to begin with.   It's human nature.  But there's one thing that can keep artists from giving up, from putting away their tools of the trade and succumbing to the average life of those who don't partake in something that creates discussion, beauty, or personal satisfaction: PASSION!

January 10, 2014 - Sandcastle on the Beach

Monet also said: “It’s on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way. So we must dig and delve unceasingly.” “When you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have before you, a tree, a house, a field or whatever. Merely think here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow, and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact color and shape, until it gives you own na├»ve impression of the scene before you.”   Then add some additional interest with people enjoying the same scene.
