'This world is but a canvas to our imagination' - Henry David Thoreau
|Watercolors By Andrea Burke, WVWS||
This is the first painting of my new series "Life on the Lake" in Clarksville, VA. This was at the Harvest Festival downtown this Fall. I love this town and have so many paintings lined up to do - and will continue as we go to more events. Especially their most popular "Lakefest" in the Summer!
This honestly is nothing to write home about, but it's the first painting I've done in 8 long months of packing, moving, goodwilling, cleaning, unpacking, more goodwilling and lots more cleaning! This was a great exercise in negative painting which I really like to do, Lynn Ferris was the first to teach me, and Sterling Edwards the last!
So, welcome 2014!!! I have 4 paintings in the works of scenes from our new hometown of Clarksville, VA! I will post them as I finish them. Finally have a routine going with lots of time to paint! I'm HAPPY!!!
2014 is off to an excellent start! 365 blank pages of brand new book to fill!!! Happy New Year, indeed!
