"...and many hearken still unsated to the voices of the Sea, and yet know not for what they listen." - JRR Tolkien . I'm one of those. Sitting on a beach, lost in thought and listening to the waves. It's one of my favorite places to be. I miss the sea.

It's a wonderful day! Might be a bit cold but Spring is coming. That's what this robin told me, anyway. (Swipe to see) Apparently, he doesn't "rock in the tree top" ALL day long, he's got stuff to do! But the rumors about all the little birds on Jay Bird Street are true. They ❤ him! . 9x12 - "Snow melt" ♤ ♡ ♢ ♧ ☆ . #tweettweet  #tweet  #rockinrobin  #comeonspring #whereyouat  #watercolour  #artistlife  #watercolorlove #artsyfartsy  #inspiredbynature  #huffpostarts  #watercolorph  #winterlandscape #robins  #art_we_inspire  #illustrationow #outsiderart  #artiste  #landscape_lover #createcultivate  #imaginarium  #handsandhustle  #carveouttimeforart #loneliestartplanet  #instapainting  #creativehappylife  #cotmanwatercolors #colormelting  #natureart  #birdpics

- “There is in art the notion of less is more, which is to say, you don’t torture a painting that has already confessed.” — Robert Breault . Simplicity is something I'm still working on. This is a fine example of how the bare bones of an idea is sometimes more than enough. Painting any more risks screwing it up and I really like how the clouds came out. Now, if I can only remember how I did them. . . . 😁 . . ♤ ♡ ♢ ♧ ☆ . #watercolor  #crafttherainbow #artofvisuals  #livecolorfully  #sombrescapes #watercolorpainting  #landscapepainting #huffpostarts  #watercolorph  #inspiring_watercolors #exploretocreate  #surelysimpleart #happyartistmovement  #art_we_inspire #visualambassadors  #makesomething #watercoloroftheday #cotmanwatercolours #happyartistmovement  #creativelifehappylife #handsandhustle  #carveouttimeforart #loneliestartplanet  #makerscollective  #craftsposure #creativehappylife  #creativityfound  #quotesaboutlife  #natureart  #abmlifeiscolorful at Albany, New York

Post has nothing to do with painting. 💡EDIT . "There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people. To see if we could become something more. So when they needed us, we could fight the battles that they never could." . Wow. . . Since I was but a wee lad in his room reading comic books, I've imagined what these heroes would look like on the big screen. I remember seeing Christopher Reeves as Superman for the first time and my eyes light up right now just thinking about it. I was so afraid when Luthor put that chain of Kryptonite around his neck and dumped him in the pool. My heart sank again later when Superman kneeled before Zod and I almost stopped believing then, too. But, as someone wiser than me has said, "Life finds a way." and even in the depths of disbelief, the real you still clings to hope. Still clings to life. Because that's what heroes do. (Don't sue me, @taikawaititi ) They inspire you to never give up. . Now, an Infinity War looms on the horizon and I find myself feeling like that little kid again. I despair, but yet hope survives. Because I believe in heroes. So, I'm not going anywhere. I'm with ya til the end of the line. . I love these stories. Could you tell? It's such an amazing time to be alive! What an absolute joy to see these stories and wow, what stories they are! THANK YOU ALL, for breaking my heart again and again because every time, you mend it stronger than before. . I just love those frickin' movies and they inspire me to do better and reach for more. 😉🌌 Hey, if you read this you probably know I re-did it. Apologies. The color of the last photo was off. Thank you. . ♤ ♡ ♢ ♢ ☆ . @marvelstudios @dccomics @jeffgoldblum #geek #ilovecomics #superman #infinitywar #heartbreakers #watercolor_gallery #weirdo #rant #oddlysatisfying #guardiansofthegalaxy #thorragnarok #watercolorpainting #landscapeart #landscapepainting #originalartwork #outsiderartist #cotmanwatercolors #madness #inspiring_watercolors #art_collective #art_we_inspire #ageofultron #betterwithtime #artsyfartsy #watercolorph #artiste #makerscollective #handsandhustle #lexluthor #kneelbeforezod at Albany, New York

"Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art." - Andy Warhol . No prob, Andy. Here's today's sketch. at Albany, New York

💡 "Don't be a follower, be a student." - Jim Rohn . Expanding my repertoire to include techniques I've seen others use. Its been a painful few months of practice, let me tell you. The trick, as I've found it, is letting go. Not trying to control the water or the paint. Simply introduce them to the paper and let the crazy kids dance. It's so much easier to let them paint themselves than to try to pick pick pick at every silly little thing. . Here's a conglomeration of a few tricks I've been working on. What do you think❓ . Let me know in the comments! ♤ ♡ ♢ ♧ ☆ at Albany, New York

My first video and I'm excited to share it with you! Took awhile, finding the right app, deleting things so I had space to save it. How is there never any space??😁 Am I the only one? . As you may have seen in my recent stories, I've been pondering some videos demonstrating my painting process. Well, here's a quick sky and background. What do you think? 👉 Check out my story to see an image of this painting. I hope you’re having a wonderful day! #sundayvibes at Albany, New York

A very quick & easy sketch. Next time, I'll make a video. Would you watch that? at Albany, New York

"It may seem difficult at first, but everything is difficult at first." - Miyamoto Musashi  The Book of Five Rings . Just a little something that stuck with me from a cool documentary about Musashi, hosted by Mark Dacascos. It was years ago that I found it by chance, flipping through the channels and I've never forgotten that quote. There are a few I remember but this one, this one has helped me so much when I've been struggling. Maybe it can help you, too. The story of Musashi is fascinating and I recommend checking into it. . I bring up that quote because when I looked at this painting, I remembered a few years ago when I started painting again. It was a struggle and almost nothing came out the way I wanted it. I would have given it up, again, if not for the kindness of others and that damn quote. Everything is difficult at first. Keep going. . @dacascosmark at Albany, New York

Cards! Now on Etsy! Link in bio . Beautiful designs from a recent pouring session. Each card is original & unique, blank inside and signed on the back. . Sold w/ envelope, sealed in a clear bag. . I'm psyched at how these came out! . Which one's your favorite? at Albany, New York

"The true artist is not proud: he unfortunately sees that art has no limits; he feels darkly how far he is from the goal, and though he may be admired by others, he is sad not to have reached that point to which his better genius only appears as a distant, guiding sun." - Ludwig van Beethoven . Yup. . EDIT: Realized I'd done more on this piece. I was inspired by my previous post and how well that one came out. 😃 Only took three tries to get a post goin'... Still like it? . 9x12 Canson Paper - After and before shots at Albany, New York

What a wonderful feeling! An original MCR framed and hanging in the home of my greatest patron! Thank you Mrs B! . This woman has believed in and supported me since the beginning. I owe her so much and she'd disagree, saying I owe her nothing. She's one of the nicest people I've ever met. Kindness can save you. . These look good on someone's wall.😃 Don't you think? . ☆ ♧ ♢ ♡ ♤ . #fastandloose  #watercolour_channel #watercolorsaddicts  #madness #imagination  #albanyny  #outsiderartist #paintingfun  #watercolorart #watercolorsky  #imaginationarts  #watercoloroftheday  #imanartist  #outsiderartist #watercolorartist  #watercolorart  #albanyny #albanyart  #thankyouall  #illustrationoftheday #handsandhustle #landscapepaintings #instaart #thankful #blessed #watercolorpainting #abmlifeisbeautiful #artsyfartsy #inspiring_watercolors #CansonPaper at Albany, New York

"The exquisite beauty of nothing" . That's what I thought just now looking at this again. The awesome silence of the piece, the absolute lack of anything but the initial washes. . After the vague idea is blasted out and before anything else is added I stand back to give it a look. The look can last a long time. I've been looking at this one for awhile now. It's time someone else saw it. . #CansonPaper 9x12 at Albany, New York
