Nature.  The allure of those hushed and quiet spaces.

Spaces  So quiet,  yet filled to overflowing.

 

And when you leave them,

as you do –

they will always,

haunt your memories.

 

Those spaces never,  really leave you.

Colors of Nature,  The Quiet Space impressionist watercolor

 

Impressionist Watercolor

A simple scene.

Pared down to a minimalist design.

 

 

Using the least amount of paints and brushstrokes possible.

Yet, striving to make each one of those,  imperative.

Required.

 

 

No more.  No less.

It is a hard task to restrain the compulsion we all seem to have ….. that calls incessantly for “More.”

 

 

But if you can do it, then the viewers’  can also see what you saw and felt:

 

That haunting magic Nature speaks through color –

in the quiet,  filled spaces. 

 

 

 

 

Make It Count

The key with this painting, was to make every thing I did, each step moment by moment…. count.

To be fully present.

From the selection of brush, paper, paints, music played, techniques used, brush stroke direction and number.

 

I made each mark relevant,  as the clock ticked.
