(15) Hanger

11 x 14” watercolor on paper - $75

Early August. Sitting just west of the hanger looking at the vine covered wall that faces the lake. This was an opportunity for me to paint what I saw and not what I perceived. Most of the hanger shape is obscured by the vines, my mind wanted to paint the lines of the walls under the vines while I worked to only paint what I saw.

Max and Georgia were with me, they were not so patient and forced me to hurry as they ran circles around my pad and materials. There was a struggle in capturing the vines as they had little definition …one large mass of green, yellow and purple. I love the shape of the hanger, a curve tilted to one side while embracing the climbing vines.
