Scotland Painting

This is a small watercolor that I did before we left Scoland of the North Sea near Dunnottar Castle. Once again, it is a small painting. I really feel the need to do something different. Inspiration and action are often two separate things. But when they come together, it makes a world of difference. Today is all day art classes - that will certainly give me the action, but not necessarily the inspiration. I guess I will move over into the other side of my brain now.

I'm still amazed at the difference in perspective one gets by looking at the smaller vs. the larger photos of your work, Lou. Great stuff, and thank you!

Sounds like you're in for a fun day!

I like that first sentence! "Scotland of the North Sea near Dunnottar Castle" You can't beat descriptions like that.

Ashley sez: P.S. I am thinking about starting a blog. What do you think? Think my life is interesting enough? ;)

Go for it, 'Just DO it,' Carpe Diem, and any other cliché that might come to mind in this space, Ashley! Just don't forget to tell us where it is...

Ashley, I think you should do a blog. The Piper put a good post about starting a blog and had a link to some good ideas. You can go back through his posts or ask him.

Susan, Thanks, but your studio/gallery is to die for! And I love your art.

Buck, I believe that is Carpe Manana especially since Ashley is also a NM girl.

Thanks Jay, Buck, and Lou for encouraging me to start a blog. I can not think of a title for my blog! But the brain is working. Hopefully i will think of something.
