Busy, busy day–January 14, 2010


Incredibly busy day–first round of Final Exams at the high school.  Almost forgot to blog.  But I hope to keep the daily streak alive.  This watercolor was done from a photograph I took one summer in Luckenbach Texas.  I was amused that chickens ran loose all over the small settlement, and had a tendency to “hang out” around the parked Harleys.  So I created a whimsical watercolor of the subject and titled it “Harley Chicks” (visible on my website http://www.recollections54.com).  I followed it up later with this one.  I had photographed a portly man about to climb off his parked machine, and thought I would add this large pig to the composition and give it an appropriate title.  Sometimes I create work tongue-in-cheek.  Although tongue-in-cheek for me usually doesn’t translate to successful business–both original watercolors remain unsold.  Oh well.

    Regardless of whether they sell or not, these are brief moments to the humor of the artist behind the brush. The hog is so priceless, David! A collector just may snarf this up. One who recognises the difference and that the artist put a separate part of himself in it.

    You seem to capture the very essence, atmosphere of every scene you paint, its almost like being there.
