Oil. 24 x 24 inch, The Poet © St Germain
Sized up (or down) refers here to measurements of canvases
rather than someone watching if they can take you out or not!
Somehow a 24 x 24 inch canvas is very easy for me to fill.
The community in Laguna Niguel, California
had this art department that organized evenings
where you could do your favorite kind of art.
Music, writing, poetry, painting, etc.
I saw this poet, with a green velvet jacket
sitting on the floor. Deeply involved in her work,
because she had no idea I was painting her.
Looking in retrospect, the design with a strong
diagonal line upward was so effective,
that I used it for another
painting where an angel was helping out.
Green would not be the effective color here, so
I painted her with a red jacket. Also, sitting on
the floor would give the idea of casual, but
she was anything but that – very intense.
This is what I imagined. She had the feather
(more romantic) of a writer, and
numerous poems were flowing out if her hand.
I imagined she had angelic help from heaven
who guided and protected her.
Anything about the process of art make me happy!

Der Natur Donnerstag
Even numbers are more restful to the eye.
That is a reason why designers (and painters)
place things often off kilter or uneven.

FOTD, Wordless, Fri Floral Foto
Am sure the pool is an attraction for this store in Fredericksburg!
Originally a German settlers town, circa 1950.
Still many beer joints and German street names
