Today’s watercolour” Could have been a Paperback Writer?” shows an old manual typewriter. Technology moves at a dizzying pace and machines like these have become archeological curiosities. It is true there was something powerful about them, and that with this machine, a piece of paper, and an idea, you could change the world: or at least be a paperback writer.
It’s a decision we’re all faced with from time to time: “Which game piece do you want to be?” Do you want to be the Race Car, the Top Hat, the Dog, or The Horse? It’s always a bit of a poser, but in today’s painting the choice has been The Horse.
When light shines on something translucent something quite magical happens. It transforms an ordinary item, and makes it come alive. I feel that’s what happens to the Crimson Jelly in today’s watercolour.
Today’s watercolour Cubist Jam is from a few years ago. Over the years I’ve done a few works that incorporated a grid system. The painting is far from the Cubist approach to representation, but Jam Jar made out of Squares was too cumbersome a title.
Today’s painting is another take on the noble cup cake.
Here is a sweet treat to start off the week. It’s a watercolour of a cupcake entitled Chaos in the Kitchen. The chaos refers to the riot of colours involved in this particular confectionery, as well as the problems that ensue whenever one spends time in the kitchen.
Today’s watercolour “10:35 AM “explores a number of textures. Members of this quartet of items exhibit the transparency of glass, the reflective qualities of metal, and the natural warmth of wood. The alarm clock belonged to my sister. She used it to keep track of her day and when her favorite shows would be on.
