Report: Page Seven (Is this all you've done all summer?!)
Untitled Watercolor/charcoal/gouache on paper 18" x 24"
Haven't been here for a few days. Away at the beach gathering shell subjects and swimming, reading and doing some occasional sketchbook drawings. The picture above was done maybe in June I think. On a side note I've become (this will be of no interest to anyone I imagine-so the self assessment which follows must be proof positive of its accuracy) a Morrissey fan to the exclusion of just about all other music I listen to while working. Who does that other than an obsessive, groupie sort of personality which I fear, at my "advanced age", I have become!! Wish I had discovered him and The Smith's twenty-plus years ago!
On the subject of painting, particularly the piece above, I'm reminded to suggest to myself again and again: "thing slowly, paint fast".
