Hello Susan..An ink and watercolor wash, 5"x7" of how it all begins for artists "The Coloring Book and Crayons"... Here we have a coloring book and some wax crayons!! I would thank that when we were young we all played with coloring books and crayons when the weather was nasty outside and playing in the house was the order of the day. And after plenty of noise and rough house with siblings, mother would lay down the law and quiet would prevail. For some they continued on and others of us we had to wait a number of decades to gravitate back to art...... :) Also Susan, I'm gratified at how many viewers are enjoying Memories.. I know it's not sterling art, but then that's not the idea.. Thank you again.. Posting two more #7 and #8 Chuck :) XX
Hi Susan, Thank you for your sweet comment on Mr. Bear.. I was wondering what color to paint the rbbon, but then realized it was Mr. Ted E. Bear and well It had to be blue!!! I've been busy with commissioned pet portraits and had finished my last one that was due.. So I wanted something that was just a relaxed work.. Hence, Mr. Bear. While doing him I decided to do a series of "Memory" works.. Things that I remember from my childhood and young adulthood.. Should be fun and hopefully others will have their memories jogged also.. Chuck :) XX
I will be there Sept. 14-19th! My daughter is a psychologist so I have to work around her schedule. We will have mostly Wed & Thursday together. She loves Mass. THey've lived there 2 years now. Don't you just love our art class online.? I really enjoy it & have learned tons. WALDA
My daughter lives in Shrewsbury. Mass & I am visiting her in Sept. Was going to take a workshop at Northeast art BUT they canceled due to low enrollment but we're still going to stay at Cape Ann Marina Lodge in Gloucester. What a small world, hey?
Thank you Susan. No I am not a German but a pure Icelandic and live on a small island south of Iceland called Heimaey, Vestmannaeyjar. Thank you so much for your interest and perhaps there is a trace of German blood from the ancestors, who knows.:)
