I started this painting as I have all my others recently, with some lines and the idea of using a certain color palette. After the first application of watercolors, I suddenly saw this beautiful sun setting in the ocean. I tried to expand and enhance this initial image. What fun this one was to paint. It’s called Fire in The Sky.

I was so excited as I painted it that I almost had to smack my hands to leave it alone as it dried between layers of paint.

Someday I will remember to have my camera ready so I can share the evolution of one of my abstract paintings. I have good intentions but…camera was upstairs and I was painting downstairs – AGAIN!

Into the Fire - Transparent Watercolor on 12" X 16" CP Kilimanjaro Block

I enjoyed the splishing and splashing I had to do to create this painting and was very happy with the colors and the neutrals they created as they mingled. AND of course I was able to incorporate a few of my favorite circles – am I chasing my tale or commenting on the circle of life. Either way “what goes around, comes around”. So I remain cliche laden and wishing you all a warm, dry, creative and sun filled day.

Crazy busy day yesterday! I found out yesterday morning that my grandson’s deployment to Afghanistan has been moved up to June 15th, so my daughter asked me if I could research flights and travel to Germany so she and Alex’s new wife can visit him before he leaves for a year. That’s done and now we are waiting to hear if he will be able to spend time with them if they go over. The unanswered questions are making everyone crazy.

An odd occurrance – shortly before I heard from my daughter I had just finished a little watercolor. I sprayed water, dropped paint and alcohol and named the painting Fire in the Firmament. I hope this isn’t a premonition.
