from the Western Australia Kalbarri landscape subject seen –  to the heart,  to the mind,  to finally onto  the paper.

 

 

 

Connecting With The Subject

Make the subject yours. Yours alone!!

Make it come to life. Even if… its just in your own mind. Breathe the spark of life into it.

Give it, all you have to give.

Don’t hold back.  Don’t make us feel cold with an impersonal touch.   No.  Make the subject Yours.  Give it all you have to give!

 

 

 

Abstracted Watercolors-  waterholes and the land

 

its all about trying to make that connection

relating those pieces together in harmony as they …were.

A Mission, A Purpose:   The “Intent”

 

trying to convey

 

the glittering golden sun slipping down

the waterholes of the land

the animal life and their trails in a seemingly barren land

the breathtaking boldness of the ocean and sky

the intricacy of pattern and line and shape of the rocks and boulders
