Won’t Number This

This watercolor was done a couple of weeks ago from a photo of a homecoming game at Virginia Tech.  It’s not the greatest of likeness, and his forehead is way out of proportion, but it had me working on facial structure and colors.

Yesterday was a beautiful day and our class painted outside.  Unfortunately, there were little red dots everywhere under the tree I was sitting, and as you may have guessed they started to bite.  That was that. I took photos instead and will work on my outdoor scene today.

It is raining and the sky is dark and ominous – just like the news, and the world in general. I can’t be the only one wondering about the state of the planet, the future for mankind, and how this holy war is going to play out.  Bob Schieffer, a CBS correspondent, said in last night’s newscast, and I am paraphrasing, that in all his years reporting the news, he can not remember a time in history when it has been more dangerous.  What exactly he meant by that statement, I don’t know.  But I am supremely thankful I have my art, my books, and my friends to provide at least a semblance of beauty and happiness in my own little world.
