pinhole camera

art quote du jour

Watercolor is a swim in the metaphysics of life... a mirror of one's own character. Let it be unpredictable and colorful. -- anonymous

I've run out of printed labels to put on the back of my cards. As a tagline I've been using Henry Miller's "to paint is to love again" but I'd like to have another tag line that captures my teaching style more. Please comment on these or add your own--

1 - be unpredictable and colorful: Watercolor lessons
2 - watercolor actually moves on the paper -- I love this image but I'm not sure how it might be crafted into a tagline - help wanted:-)
3 - Winter is etching, watercolor is spring - gotta luv it from a flower painter's perspective
4 - Watercolor condenses time and consolidates experience. (Frank Marcello)
5 - I teach painting to lawyers. This sentence probably works better in conversation than in print. I'd like to find more lawyer students because lawyers talk while they paint to reveal aesthetic decisions they make and their self talk helps me to guide their experiments with the colors.

portrait swap

Yesterday I read in the art_theory community an offer to participate in a portrait series so I got in touch with alisamugano_art and we decided to trade portraits of each other. She sent me one of two she's doing of me and I sent her 4 variations for her portrait. Here is one of them.
