making the connections.
what my eyes saw, what my mind said, what my heart felt and what my soul heard……..
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
making the connections
I feel, with all these
and slipping bits onto paper ……….
one bit at a time
