WATERCOLOR, WATERCOLOR.: 2009 continued.

Painting and creating art has always been a huge part of my life. From a young child with pads of typing paper to the present ... an older experienced dude with pads of watercolor paper. My entire work life was as a commercial artist at all levels of the pecking order. I was born and partially raised on a farm and a small town. Midwest roots except the winters seem to be colder these days. I'm a family guy with kids and grandkids. Unfortunately I can be quite the procrastinator. Retirement does have it's drawbacks, but I can live with that one. Thanks for stopping by and showing interest in my blog.

Flooded Trees

A few quick brush strokes, a little water and 
some color.  It's the right direction, just not quite
what it should be.

I like it Doug, very much so :D
Its kind of soothing/relaxing... if that makes any sense.

Beautiful color choices, Doug. You could quit right here and I would want this painting. You have already very successfully suggested the sand and water - it feels like a quiet abandoned beach to me. Beautiful.

I love it but this just illustrates something I often feel about my own work if it doesn't meet MY EXPECTATIONS.
I see flaws or failure where others see a beautiful painting.
