An intimate little view of grasses sprouting at the shallow end of the pond. I found this painting when I was cleaning up for open studios – it wasn’t finished, though I had started it years ago. Sometimes it takes a long time to figure out what a painting wants to be. With much more experience now, it was easy to put the finishing touches to it.
They just keep coming, which is good, since this is winter. Bless the snowcover! A little less global warming!
It’s hard to imagine how roots can penetrate the cracks enough to get a hold, let alone grow. And yet there are trees here, even if there is a limit to their eventual growth . Which makes me wonder, am I looking at an old but stunted tree, or a sapling?
Heat waves – summer is not my favorite season. Being somewhere else helps. This small memory painting from a COOL day on the coast is one way of coping. Cool sand, an obscured sun, and an invitation to go for a refreshing walk. It’s where I will pretend to be today. And I’ll think about what to paint tomorrow. Enjoy.
