This scene is at Jug Handle Beach. But it can be anywhere.
I took one week to complete this painting.
When I almost finished this painting, I wanted some movement in this painting.
During my morning walk, it was thick foggy morning in Santa Rosa CA, I saw clouds were crossing in front of the sun. The sun was covered with fog, but there is round light.
When I got home I finished this painting with the clouds passing in front of the sun.
I just found a book:
Slowly, slowly, slowly said the Sloth
By Eric Carle
I love childrenâ€™s books with good story & ilustration. Eric Carle is one of my favor illustrator & author of childrenâ€™s book. When my old son was little, his favor book was â€œ The Very Hungry Caterpillarâ€ by him. Now his son who is almost four year old, has the book.
Anyway Eric Carle wrote on back of the book â€ Slowly, slowly, slowly said the Slothâ€:
â€œWhy are we always in a hurry?
Rush. Rush. Rush.
We scurry from here and there.
Quick! Click!—— we watch TV. We eat fast food.
Everyone tells us make it snappy!
Hurry up! Time is flying! Step on it!
Thereâ€™s so little time just to be with friends.
to watch a sunset or graze at a star-filled sky.
Ah. What we could learn——-even if just a little from the gentle sloth who slowly, slowly, slowly craws along a branch of a tree. Eats a little, sleep a lot, and lives in peace.â€
I love to watch. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m enjoying painting realism.
During painting, this world time disappears and staring at â€œTime goes byâ€.
â€œTime goes byâ€ slowly, gently just like mild sensuous breezes.
