|Got Any More Cookies? Linocut with Watercolor|
This weekend, I'll be in Little Italy in San Diego at the Mission Federal Artwalk, painting, chatting about art, and soaking up the ocean air. I'll also be dining on Italian food - pasta, bread and some more bread - and street vendor funnel cake with powdered sugar and fresh berries, but shhhhhh. Those little delicacies are not on my fitness plan. :)
If you're local, or in San Diego this weekend, come and say hello. My booth location this year is on the corner of Columbia and Beech - #172.
Have a great weekend, and don't forget to Make Something!

In 1926, a year after Sargent's death, Adrian Stokes, who had accompanied the artist to the Alps, described what had inspired his late friend to paint particular watercolor:
Sargent's watercolors... usually record, with the utmost directness, something that had excited his admiration, or appealed to his artistic intelligence. That may have been the clearly defined and exquisite edge of some rare object; of the way in which a dark thing, when opposed to vivid light, is invaded by it, and loses local color; or the change that seems to occur in the color of things along the edge where they meet. ~The Watercolors of John Singer Sargent, by Carl Little 1998
