Still working on this one, too. This is really in its very early stages, but I thought I'd post it anyway. We'll see how it goes, and maybe I'll post the finished piece later. It's 24x36, acrylic on canvas. The Grand Marais harbor is one of my favorite places.
This is a work in progress. When I paint, sometimes it's like a dream the way things appear unexpectedly, yet are visions that lurk in my subconscious. It's also kind of like looking for pictures in the clouds shapes appear and change kaleidoscopically. I started to see fish swimming to the left, and then afterwards, I noticed the whippet running to the right in the lower right hand corner. Each of these canvases measure 24"x36".

I thought it would be funny to give this guy a LIFEGUARD shirt. Some of these frivolous watercolors contain double-meanings and inside jokes, and some don't really have anything to say. Anyway, I hope you enjoy seeing them. They're a good way for me to get unstuck, and have led me to other ideas to pursue.
This and the following seven posts are impromptu watercolors along a line I've been thinking of for the last year or more. These are definitely meant to be whimsical... cartoonish. These represent a return to or revisiting of the type of drawings I did when I was in Jr. High and High School in Africa. My art teacher gave us a list of daily scenarios in Liberian village life to draw on. One was "Making Fire." There must be more to it than I realized, because when I drew a quick cartoon of two women in tie-dyed lappas and head ties, one holding out a lit match to a wood pile, he just laughed. For some reason that has stuck with me.
