I had in mind to do two elderly ladies sitting on a park bench feeding the pigeons. It became instead two girls just hanging in the summertime.
It’s from my head not a photo for a change. I remember being a kid and just drawing all the time. It is more of a concerted effort trying to post every day. It’s also #worldwatercolormonth and I am proud to be a contributor (and proud of Doodlewash Charlie for making it happen).
This was the actual image I meant to post.
Here’s my basic setup these days. Nice and simple. I’m running out of paper.
A big pile of stuff I’ve done in the last few months. I need to stick it up on a wall and do a retrospective. Anyway, have a great day!
these waves like children–
splashing colors and laughing
back and forth between
wind breathes through water, dancing
with incandescent reply
I didn’t do much drawing at the beach this year, but I did take my art supplies down to the water one day, battling both the errant waves and the wind. I also took many photos, but my adventures with camera settings means they need a lot of work.

Although I posted this the other day I worked on it more. Maybe I overdid it but boy it was fun painting all those dots. I’m proud that I’ve covered the blog with Kerfe offline–I’ve posted every day for a week. WordPress folks have been kind in their likes and comments. Thank you!
They’re doing construction in my neighborhood. There are piles of Belgian blocks for the curbs, wood and other building materials. The pattern of these stacked concrete blocks appealed to me so I did a drawing. I must admit I’m rather pleased with it.
His photo. I liked his comment “Pay attention to detail”. Very astute. I did change the somewhat muddy water to blue: poetic license.
I came across a picture of Beethoven at age 13. It’s the earliest known image of him and I attempted to paint him. The music behind him is his piano sonata Op.14, No.2, which I studied and enjoy playing.
Beethoven was born in 1770 in Bonn-on-Rhine. His musical education began at age four, taught by his father. At eight he played the violin well; at eleven he played Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier. His career is well known. There’s a great app available of his magnificent Ninth Symphony, with four versions of it each with a different conductor. You can scroll and see the different instrument parts playing. It’s very cool. 20,000 people attended his funeral and I would have been one of them. I’m a fan!
