DOES HE HAVE PERHAPS SECRETS / Daily Painting #1043

Watercolor / 7 x 7 inches

It feels so good to be back in the world of watercolor! I was really curious, though, to see what would happen when watercolor met the abstract series. Well, now I know, and I can report that I am pleased with the result. What do you think?

TASAF KACHINA / Daily Painting #1042

Watercolor / 7 x 9 inches

I've painted this Kachina, and, in fact, this particular doll, fom my own collection, previously on this blog. In fact, this doll was the subject of my first Kachina painting, in the 1960s. To learn more, just search for the name, Tasaf, above. This Hopi Kachina is a representation of their neighbors, the Navajo.

As you can see, I've decided to continue the current series of watercolors. i haven't, however, decided how long this will continue, nor, for that matter, what size I will eventually settle on. My best guess at the moment is that they will settle around 6 x 9 inches. I will probably alternate between the oils and the watercolors.

THE RABBIT HUNTER / Daily Painting #1041

Watercolor / approximately 9 x 10 inches

Because half the students in my recent workshop were interested in learning watercolor and the other half in oil, I demonstrated in both mediums. Here's another demo watercolor from that workshop. This one shares its origins with #1037, the one of cattle GOING TO WATER. I'm delighted by the response to my inclusion of watercolor on this blog. There will be more watercolors in future posts. Thanks so much for all the positive and encouraging comments both here and in person.

Wakas is the Hopi take on the Spanish word for cattle, vacas. This is definitely a rare version of the Cow Kachina. But an intriguing one.

Whoa! That's not a painting! That's an iPhone photograph, or iPhoneography. It was supposed to be on my daily photo blog, WHEN A PAINTER SNAPS. Somehow, I managed to get my pixels crossed. Now, what to do about it. Because of the many different ways that you receive these posts, simply switching the images could cause even more confusion. So. Here's the deal. I'm going to post today's painting on WHEN A PAINTER SNAPS. To see it, just click here.

Please accept my apology for the confusion.
