I had such lofty plans for doing some painting this summer.
I was saving,
and saving this post until I could add just one finished painting of my own.
.I’m not going to suggest it would have been anything like this
.John Singer Sargent was in Greece.
I was in Greece too!
One of us was a bit more productive.
though I did take my watercolours to Paris
and I certainly visited Laduree…
This is not my painting. (via Pinterest)
even just a little bird like this would have been something
But alas, my painting muse flew the coop
I did find a few pretty images of paint boxes in my travels both on land and the internet 🙂
.and colours blending in a water coloury fashion
. I could certainly paint this, couldn’t I?
Perhaps I simply spent too much time on my ‘gadgets’
.Let’s all take a collective moment to be thankful that Van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso et al didn’t have an iPad.
.These sweet little slippers from Anthropology whispered;
“You never painted this summer! For shame, for shame”
. “Christopher Clutches” filled with watery colour goodness mocked me too
.Watercolours in every permutation floated through my days,
a spectral reminder of broken promises to myself.
Down the runway
…and back to the table again
John Singer Sargent
.Images abounded to chide me;
PAINT! PAINT! What’s the matter with you? PAINT!!

Well, actually, this image was more like “Buy me! Buy me! What’s the matter with you?? Buy me!”

My little box of travel watercolours (Winsor & Newton)
and one very tightly painted pear from my class. I had to cut it out from the page because my shadowing was so bad.
Did I mention I’m a Virgo?? Albeit one that doesn’t feel the need to clean her paintbox or cut her pear particularly well?!)
LOOK at this!
I could say this is why I don’t even try.

He kills me.
…Wallpapers available at BLACK CROW STUDIOS
.If one were really, really brave, you could forgo the wallpaper altogether, soak the wall and just go at it with your own paints.
,Issey Miyake feeling it
.Who would think baking a cake would ever start looking like the easiest option?!.

I’m visiting friends in Santa Fe, New Mexico soon.
My travel paints will be going into my luggage.
How about you? Have you been artistic this summer?
I hope so!
