Home From The Sea
Well now what is happening? Two paintings completed in two days. Well let me explain. As you are no doubt aware I am a Scotsman, and yes I do wear a kilt. I am sure you have all heard the stories about us Scots. We are all mean and we keep every coin in our pockets a prisoner. We being a Scotsman and coming into my paint area yesterday morning I noticed a fair bit of paint still left over from the day before painting.
Cannot have that. So in spite of all the criticisms I had had about the colour of the previous painting I got out a canvas and produced another. All this walking along the coast seems to be getting to my inner me.
Same colour but used in a slightly lighter way. This time I had the canvas portrait rather than landscape. Not so sure I like it as much as the other one but I have not binned it so that has to be a first.
I used it on the other blog because whenever I see yachts sailing I cannot get out of my head the idea that they are dancing on the waves.
Oh and before I finish I have to put the record straight. We Scots are not at all mean, we are open hearted and very generous. We had a prime minister very well known both sides of the pond but well known in Scotland for a very different reason. Her name was Margaret Thatcher. She came to Scotland and stood at the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland and had the nerve to say there was no such thing as society, only individuals. We in Scotland are proud of our society and no matter what anybody says and thinks we care for one another.
But that does not mean we can waste paint. Ha ha. Have a great day.
