In Search Of

5x7 acrylic
Another day at the easel.  I like to end my day with a posting if possible.  It gives me a sense of accomplishment.  I have always admired the Great Glenn Miller, in watching the movie of his life (an oldie) he was always searching for a certain sound in his musical arrangements.  In a way, art and producing art is so similar, we as artist always strive to achieve a certain look in our work and when we see It, we know It, that again is what makes out craft so wonderful, the It Factor.   So we continue to be In Search Of!

Happy Painting everyone.

      Thank you so much, and Vic, maybe it wasn't such a good idea signing up for my email alerts. Please don't worry about visiting every time. You are so busy and I don't want you to have to bother with a comment.

      I will actually write you an email/ Take care.

  4. Je trouve que vous avez entièrement raison en ce qui concerne la comparaison du musicien et du peintre...
    J'aime beaucoup le travail de votre ciel dans cette dernière peinture.
    une envie d'évasion se produit en l'admirant.
    Gros bisous à vous et bonne peinture.

    1. Dear martinealison, oh how I wish that someone could translate what you have written. I will try to find out how to get a translation gadget in the comment section of the blog.

      all the best to you,
      Joan

  5. Hi Joan.
    Another beauty my friend. Yes Joan, it was a very good idea signing up for your postings. Now I won`t miss any of your lovely landscapes. I comment on your postings because I want to, not because i have`to. It`s very good of you to worry about me and my time, but please believe me when I say that if ever their was a time that one of your paintings comes along that I`m not too keen on, then I won`t comment. God bless you my friend and stop worrying. All the best joan.
    Vic.
