Fascination with the Mundane

work in progress

They are just drainage ditches along the road. After the deluge of rain over these past few weeks they are swollen with runoff. For some reason they fascinate me! In a matter of hours day they are filled with refections. Then just as quickly as they appear they retreat to shiny mud, then cracked earth. So on the easel is a watercolor underpainting of a local ditch. Its a bit tighter than I would like, probably due to current everyday stresses. But it’s workable.

    I believe that the artist who sees the extraordinary in the ordinary is the one who will paint forever with joy. You do that in this painting. I look forward to the pastel. Hopefully your painting brings you some peace during this hectic time.
