At The Precise Moment that Franz Schubert Heard The First Notes To His Next Composition– I go back to this painting often.  It’s over 10 years old now!  It always makes me happy when I look at it.

This painting is about breaking up, and the heartache felt with departure from a relationship.  It’s a painting of my x, but it’s also a self portrait in a way.  It’s a figure crying in the rain, broken as to why two people can’t stay together- I chose pastel and bright colors, turquoise, pinks, peaches and yellows because despite the loss of what was, I can still remember the breathtaking beauty of the times spent together.  Those colors usually only surface in those types of works.

Earlier this week I passed this boy and his dog sleeping on the street in the University District, Seattle and snapped a quick picture, which I worked off of hoping to capture with washed vagueness the bright autumn day and long shadows.

Watercolor Portrait

This portrait was done live with my portable watercolor backpacking materials and Matt, the sitter and I both sat on a boulder at end of a long hike to Lake Dorothy in the Washington Cascade Mountains.  It took about 15-20 min.
