Awakenings IV – 2-1/2” x 2-1/2 – watercolor

Wow it is Saturday already, I am not really sure where the week went. During the week I was really busy with finalizing some items at my current job, transistioning the departure. It probably was a good thing I gave 4 weeks notice, as it would have been impossible with only two weeks.

This week I have been more in a cacoon. Thinking about what I am going to do the first week I am off and how to organize my studio to maximize time and space. This Awakening watercolor are soft curved shapes was inspired by thoughts of how the hand has a natural tendancy to shape and create items. The soft belly shape of clay pots and vases, and kneading bread dough.

Yesterday I had class with Robert Liberace, and will take photos of the drawing to share this afternoon. I have not really had any time to paint with oils this week, and my weekend is pretty packed. Maybe I will find some time to paint with watercolor, if I do I will post them for you to see.

I hope you are having nice weather like we are in DC. I already went on a long walk this morning along the Potomac. It was beautiful.
