Portraits are tricky. Portraits done in watercolor, more so. On the right, we see Krishna, the Hindu God of love who plays flute, and is a vegetarian or vegan, and does Tantra with a lot of the ladies! On the left, we see Radha, his main squeeze. Krishna is very gentle and erotic and playful. Maybe He is that invisible Couc Lover whom I sometimes feel touching me erotically! Until I come, get moist, tingle or tremble.
This one’s on sale for $5. I still need to master landscapes! Buildings with their shadows are intriguing. This is a study of Alma Street and North Mount Shasta Blvd. That’s where we hold our Monday afternoon Farmer’s Market, 3:30-6 pm, until mid-October. And yes, they take EBT/CalFresh and double it with chips or cards, up to maybe $10 worth? Many Farmer’s Markets throughout California will do that! Encourage everyone to eat healthy!
I did this one today. I am getting better with the watercolor pen. Watercolor is very complex and delicate! I am using warm as well as cool colors in experimental ways. I am pulling together years of art classes and sketchbooks kept. I need more landscape practice.
I live in a rural area, where there is a wide-open space between Weed and Yreka. The STAGE bus runs there. Recently, I saw another view of Mount Shasta from I-5 or perhaps Hwy 99. I made up that huge, spinning star! I miss owning Adobe Illustrator, where I can make many sophisticated, pixelated stars. With a few flicks of my fingers on a touch-screen or Mouse!
Done with watercolor pen. I could go deeper with perspective and colors. I am still mastering watercolor pen. This one is a Japanese model purchased at Utrcht Art Supply in downtown Berkeley. I used an inexpensive set of Russian watercolor cakes in a pan with this.
I did this with a silver pen plus Prismacolors and graphite pencils. $5 if you are traveling I-5 through NorCal or Southern Oregon!
I am experimenting with something “tastefully sexy” here. Erotic! Let’s see how this one goes over at The Farmer’s Market today! On sale $5, envelope included!
I have performed and helped others perform live music in Mount Shasta. I wish I had the courage to play guitar in public again. Anyways, I have bought myself several small musical instruments, including a recorder, a tambourine, an electronic keyboard, and an ocarina.
There are many lakes around Mount Shasta. Heart Lake is one. Lake Shastina is another. Once I took the STAGE bus out to Lake Shastina. I believe Lake Siskiyou is the one just outside of town. You can boat there.
I have rightfully concluded these will be a big hit with the summertime tourist crowd.
