So many ways to put an image on paper. Each one unique and an adventure. 'Old Blues' is pulled from a solarplate etching and then hand colored.

I found another website that an artist has put on the Internet that I really like. Again, very loose watercolor technique that I find so pure. I always strive for detail when just the opposite is so much fun to view. Cameras were invented for detail, painting should allow for imagination!

A long time friend of mine just went through the bad part of having a pet. You enjoy their love and attention for so many years only to suffer losing them to age. In that final stage it's hard to remember all the joy that they brought into your life. When Teri and I lost our last dog, a fantastic Springer Spaniel, we decided that would be the last. Didn't work out that way though. My son got an Akita that immediately belonged to all of us. Once more the cycle! This is one of the paintings I did to remember him.

I have decided that my paining technique needs to move in a different direction. As I look at things that I have done in the past I can see that little is left to ones imagination. I work way too hard at trying to capture every detail of my subject. Comparing my painting (acrylic) called 'Time' to a painting by Rebecca Elfast, a loose watercolor, it's easy to see that hers is so much more fun!
