Finished Artwork in the Process

With the following mantra in my head “It’s the process. It’s the process” miraculously I beat back Mr. Resistance and pulled off this latest watercolor painting.

It wasn’t easy either.

Quite a while back I visited Clark Botanical Garden in nearby Albertson, NY and snapped a few pictures of some of the landscape gardens. A couple of those photos ended up as paintings. When I went through those a couple months ago I decided to push myself out of my artist’s block and throw some paint around.

That was it, then we left for Greece. On our return I really wasn’t interested in continuing on deep, fall colors. Geez, we just came back from the bright whites and blues of the Greek islands!

I almost ripped this off the watercolor block to toss it when my head said to just try to finish it. If I hate it afterwards, by all means, throw it out.

Process first and foremost, I pushed through. It’s a finished work at the very least.

As a fine artist, I paint, knit, and make jewelry, to figure it all out.

  1. Hi, Dora, your work is beautiful! Colourful and in my eye, it has got loose. Nice! Have fun. Take it easy. Please be kind to yourself. For me, joy must come first. Ah, finally, I could find your new blog (so sorry, I was/am hopeless for a computer and internet. It took a long time to find yours.) Best wishes, (( Hugs )), Sadami

    1. I’m glad you found me Sadami! I lost most readers in my blog move, unfortunately. Thanks you the compliments on my work!
