Thursday August 11, 2011 A Stone/ Recent Project / Theme Thursday

Beginning of a New Day

A Stone:  One daily observation.

The day begins quietly, doesn’t know what it wants to be.  Thunderstorm expected in the afternoon, until then it will be another hot day.


This is a very busy time for me, I have no time to “gather scattered words, to make sense of it all”.  It isn’t a transition time, but perhaps a time for completing projects.  All seems pressing right now, only wish I could get these things finished, so I could do what I want.  I started an investigation several months ago, and just haven’t had enough time to really get into it, so it calls to me.  Whispers my name, teases me and of course I want to respond.  What to search in this playground I have created.

Still Life

I am looking at still life, and asking the question.  “How much information is needed?”  And right now I cannot finish the question.  How much information is needed, for what?  To create an interesting painting?  For the viewer to still recognize the painting as “still life?”  I am a little bit lost right now, so you see how much I would like to stay with this, even if it is to finish my question.  What am I asking?


Theme Thursday prompt:  Tree


I’ve been looking

At trees all summer

I want to capture them

I want to keep them

I want to do a series

Of drawings of trees


Summer is almost gone

The series may be of “winter trees”



I continue to look at trees
