Sun and Calm Towards Arran
I just had to use this picture today. One of my stories on my other blog was about a man on just such a beach. As I told the tale I remembered painting this very painting. It was as if it was saying to me add me today please.
I liked this painting from the very first brushstroke. I continue to like it to this day.
It was painted on a large canvas using acrylic.
It is a good painting for me today for many reasons. I am heading out to run whenever I have posted this blog. As I look over my shoulder the rain is beating off the window. The coastal path will be wet; the sand from the beach will cling to my trainers and legs. My running top will be soaking as will my shorts. I will be thinking of days like in this picture and I will be loving every minute of my run.
Yesterday I thought I would try to do a drawing, having received a beautiful drawing of my tree roots from Barbara I felt inspired to maybe try something new. I have never ever just tried to use pencils.
I have made a start on a picture of a mountain. Some of you know of my love of mountains. Of course Barbra has told me I should have started with something small, less challenging. I am probably doomed to fail, but I am still going to try.
Hope you have a great day and if I do not hear from you a great weekend.
