Oil, 24 X 30 The Potter © St Germain
Painted this potter years before I started pottery
this year. It often looks right, but my hands
are still so inept that I can’t even say
I am a potter. All the people who do the
how-to videos say that they have done it
for 20 years, so I wish myself success
and even more determination to get to
at least a certain level.
When we think we are our own boss and live
in a democratic society that is largely true, but
in the spiritual realm that would not be the greatest
thing, for God reminds us once in a while
he is the potter, and I am the clay.
Ouch, I have felt that when he made some
moves that seemed illogical or unnecessary,
and I started protesting, “What on earth are you doing??”
I think I hear a chuckle:)
My Weekly Smile. Once in a while I’lI hit all the angles right so it’s fairly symmetrical and “normal” looking. At first I balked at the brown clay, but am getting used to it now. Also, it’s not as bad to throw away brown clay as it would have been white, lol (this is how we are kidding ourselves:):)).

Light on white – I love it! Yet, there is still another
light (lamp) on:) Makro-Tek
Moss and Fall are for me synonyms:)
Der Natur Donnerstag
A cool Reflection unintended in a completely a different
style than the cattle and barn
These color layers in the sky were really there,
I only intensified them.
The ocean is even more mysterious by night

Thank you, Jesh! I hope you have a lovely week as well!
Your painting is enchanting– so full of action. The sky shot description was very perceptive and added to my enjoyment.
Thank you Ken – it was an amazing surprise on our way back home!
The Skywatch shot is lovely. #Makrotex
I love the wide open spaces in the fields and the ocean pics. It’s something I really need right now with all the complexity in my daily life. I like the pots as well, and the potter in the painting fits nicely.
Hope you have a great week!
Is it that it gives you a feeling of freedom? When I lived on the country side what they call “news” was far away. Now in the suburbs all the election issues bother me more, although I know what to do … tighten my belt and prepare more… Thank you for coming by Amanda:)
Love them, especially the water!
Thank you Vicky!
Lovely colorful flowers, and thanks for sharing your pottery craft. That has to be so fun to see a completed project. 🙂
Have to admit, it’s only fun – and may be relief – when a project went well!
Beautiful photos and a bit of light.
Thank you Friend for visiting me this week!
Your painting is beautiful. I like all the other pictures too, specially the photo of the pots.
Thanks for sharing & have a great day!
Thank you – some seemingly difficult paintings turn out easy (like this one), but the opposite happens too:)
Your closing ocean is wild! Their is something about a savanna with prairie and trees. So impressive that you are learning a new art form.
It was years I held off on this one because of the initial cost of pottery. Since we had some left of our last house sale we could do it:)
Me again, I’m irritated at myself for not saying “There is something…”
Sorry, it’s off my chest now.
What is wrong with ” there is something …?”
Oh I get it, I irritated myself when I went back and saw my comment. It should have been “there is something” so yes, you see something like that that I write just say it. I appreciate all errors being corrected.
The ocean is mysterious at night. My favorite picture is the cattle and the farmhouse. Happy Halloween!
JM thank you! I have to tell you about Halloween – you might not know – it is inspired by the devil, and it does not matter to him if you dress up scary or not.
Thank you for coming by Jim and am happy you like the painting:)
I like that light on white photo…and all the rest. Thanks for linking up!
I really like the painting, you can sense the concentration in her eyes. I tried ‘pottering’ once – what a mess, never again!
The colours in the sky are amazing, I’ve never seen anything like it.
Thank you, Keith. Think about long term with pottery … like 5-10 years? It may be quicker when one takes classes – but I would have to drive an hour for that.
I love that dark ocean!
It’s Southern California, there close to Long Beach and Laguna:) No wonder you like it!
I’ve heard laughing hard at my actions sometimes. He does have a good sense of humor I believe. Have a wonderful week!
Haha, great you shared this!
I really like all your pictures today. The painting is beautiful. Actually, I always wanted to make pottery. I did a course once, but never had the right time for it. Now I feel like pottery again 😉
Kind regards – Elke
Yes, pottery, like any other art you have to make time for. Am happy I caused you to remember how fun pottery was:):)
I like the painting and the pottery. I’ve never tried to make pottery, but it seems like it would be frustrating.
The deception when it looks good on the wheel, but a few weeks later it looks crooked on every side, lol!
Beautiful painting, those African violets are marvelous. Thank s for sharing with Garden affair.
