Beginning the Tarrant County Courthouse Cupola

Tarrant County Courthouse Cupola

While the water floats about the Winsor Blues and Reds billow about, I thought I would pause, photograph and post again to the blog before it gets much later.  I think I’ll be at it awhile tonight.  Meeting new friends today, and connecting with some old ones has managed to inject some new energy in me.  Also, I feel my time in the man cave coming to an end, as I am about to leave for Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

I decided to begin a mid-size watercolor (17″h x 15″w) of the cupola of our Tarrant County courthouse.  The light playing off it last evening was breathtaking, and I find myself wishing to experiment with some new color combinations I haven’t tried before.

I’m getting a kick out of listening to Alabama Live on the stereo as I poke around on this watercolor.  During the past decade, I have missed listening to their rich vocal harmonies, and always wished I could be part of a group capable of pushing out that kind of sound.   I have only listened to their studio tracks over the years, but this live album has a medley of “There’s No Way/When We Make Love” that is a real heart-stopper!  Anyway, great musical company.

Back to painting!  Thanks for reading.
