Cloud Painting


When Toni and I were Kayaking at Gleason's Cove last summer, I took seceral pictures of the clouds and water. One day it was particularly beautiful, with the water smooth and the clouds reflecting in it. I tried and failed to reproduce it here, but I will try again.

The trees have turned their yellow-green. Some of the tulips are dropping their petals. Every day that the season advances I wish I could stop its progress. Last Spring was so recent, followed by Summer, Fall, and Winter, that they seem to be tripping over each other. Before I know it, I'll be shovelling snow again. Every new leaf is already on its way to turning brown and dry.

I have suddenly come to realize the truth in what "old" people used to tell me.......that time passes faster and faster as the years go by.

Pam told me the funniest thing about that..."Life is like a roll of toilet paper; the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes!" Hahaha!

By the way, that anonymous post is from your daughter! I couldn't remember how to get into my own blogger account.

Hi there. I have moved to Portland and now have a new baby. I haven't been painting a lot lately. But I remember last year I tried to do the painting from your photograph and I failed too. I didn't try again. Water reflections could be hard. I think I failed because I was too technical. Perhaps try to do a quuick and loose interpretation. Otherwise, hope all is well!

I see this painting through different eyes and find it very successful - though it may not be what you wanted - I think it sings.

You captured the clouds perfectly.
