Mixed Media 7x7inches
This is in the lighthouse series though not completely happy with the domed head but could be a tower not necessarily a Lighthouse though to my mind it is.
What works for me in this painting is the sky background with the bands of cloud

Mied Media on board 9x8inched
The lighthouse alone and aloof
a landmark by day
a beacon of light at night
A message of hope to sailors
a motife for artists
This was the first a experiment really the full story on here
The Long Leg
As I am in a lighthouse mode for painting I though I would show a painting by Edward Hooper that feature a lighthouse with the added bonus of a yatch, as with many of Hooper’s paintings it seems to have two things going on in this case the yatch at sea as well as the lighthouse on the land and these are the main focal points. The lighthouse helps those at sea at night or bad weather, so the yatch and lighthouse seperate but need each other, there is always this sense of space in many of Hooper’s paintings
This sort of painting can mean many things to different people,Pollock painted this during the height of the cold war and all that around him in America during the early 1950’s when it was not easy to be a Artist….
I like to think of this paiuting as a prelude to the internet, which though not invented then , to my mind shows the intereconnection of everthing and everybody on different levels.
Asl someone else what they se in this painting and they will come up with a another answer
what do you see?.
Looking out to sea the artist contemplates the next move, soaks in the atmosphere of the sea as it crashes against the rocks down below.Squinting her eyes to look at something distant that has caught her eye,the image burns on the minds eye for a while simmers and stored away for future reference.
The sound of the sea and the seagulls and the smell of the sea, the moment is now and here and forever.
We are moving nearer winter when the days sometimes never really seem to get light, a time of lots of sunrise ans sunsets as the days are shorter.
Playing around with the colour red here as well, red is a strong coloure so needs dilluting a bit browns go well representing the earth
This is just seeing if I can do it as the idea has been in the back of my mind for some time.I cannot for the life of me remember the correct name for Three paintings together perhaps someone can enlighten me!
The power of Twitter strikes again! have the name I was looking for thanks to twitter friends
