Wednesday--!

I had lunch with my art friend Meredith today. We went kind of late, so we had the place to almost to ourselves. Next to our table there was a decorative plate with some glass stones in it. We both noticed how super-pretty it was. I pulled out my camera...."I'm going to blog this", I said. "ooooooookay", she said.

(....And there were golfers outside the restaurant on the 18th hole, golfing in the cold-cold weather)

The glass stones looked like soap bubbles

Lovely oil sketch. What size is it?

They do indeed look like soap bubbles! Such a pretty dish too. Were you inspired by the sand traps at the golf course with this one? I like the feel of it. Also, ...I forgot what I wanted to say right in the middle of thinking it. Sigh...

Wanted to let you know I can no longer view BtS (did I tell you this already?) as it is invite only. No big deal, but wanted to let you know.

Yes they do look like soap bubbles on a pretty plate with character. Like the little landscape too--you tell it all very well with just a few strokes. What is a "cradled panel"?
I've never heard the term--How is it different from stretched canvas, canvas board? My curiosity wants to know. Thanks Celeste.

Funny story. "I'm going to blog this!"

These landscapes are wonderful, Cleste.

Great energy, clean colors that read beautifully. Lovin' what you're doing with green.
Art is everywhere, and its great to see a glimpse through your trained eye.

Another fine landscape. Love the line of sun-struck trees on the horizon.

Of course they're playing golf; the sun's out, after all. Cold? They play golf here in the snow, with orange balls.

Looks great. I love those "bubbles" and that you noticed them...so many people don't even register that beauty.

I was getting kind of hung up on a little watercolor I'm doing, lighting on the grass, that kind of thing. It helps to see how loose you are in this one, tells me it can be good without all the angst (even if it is joyful angst). Love the dish! The world is so full of beautiful things!
