We Are Sailing

Tomorrow we are off to the rainy Island of Arran so I thought I would post this painting before I go:

Mixed media on board, 59x87cm.

The important element in this is that when I do my Subconscious Musings each morning I do them on A1 paper. But on Tuesday there my Musing got more and more extended to the point that it has become a painting in it's own right:

Acrylics and oil pastel on paper, A1.

The obvious question which arose was: "Aye, but can you do it directly on a board responding only to your inner being and without a safety net?

You bet your sweet bippies I can.

And I did.

See y'all in a couple o' weeks when I get back from Arran weather-beaten and brown as a berry.

We are sailing,
we are sailing,
across the sea,
to have our tea (just made that bit up).

Ooooh you lucky thing! I'd love to go there. Have a lovely trip.

I like the energy of line you've got in these. The spot of yellow works beautifully against the blues.

Hi Jill, Nice to see you here...We had a lovely holiday, thanks, with plenty of sunshine too.
Glad you like the artwork!

Lisa, Arran is just made for you with great landscape/seascape for you to produce your fantastic paintings.

There is a lot of energy going into paintings like this, turning inwards to find a different music. It's where I am atm...glad you like it. The holiday interupted my flow, hope I can find it again.

I hope you are having a fabulous time on your recent journey.

Please. Keep listening to your subconscious! It speaks good things!

Now, watch those mizzenmasts and keep your absolute bearing, eh?!

Hi Melinda, sorry I haven't replied sooner but glad to hear from you.

There is only so much time in this world and for me it's difficult to know how to make best use of my time - I have so many interests and so many possibilities to follow. So I chose to follow this Muse and see where it takes me. Thanks for your support in my endeavours.

ps: I saw the trailer of a film that you and I will just love - "My Dog Tulip". It's an animation about an old guy (me?) and what becomes the love of his life, a German Shepherd called Tulip. Keep an eye out for it.
See ya,
