Window, Church, and Boat

These are some paintings I did for my online watercolor painting course that I think turned out fairly well. As I have said before, some are so bad they will never see the light of day–or be used as a WordPress post. 😊 But the bad ones do serve a purpose: a learning experience on what not to do.

KT Workman grew up in the rural South without the benefit of cell phones or the Internet, a time and place that has heavily influenced her writing. To this day, when she puts pen to paper—or fingers to keyboard—nine times out of ten her mind veers south onto that old, familiar road. It goes home. KT resides in Arkansas where she writes a wide variety of gothic and speculative fiction, poetry, and dabbles in watercolor painting and amateur photography.

      1. They probably aren’t as bloody awful as you think. But It’s nice to be able to put what you want out there, and keep the rest under wraps. I have a lot of songs that will probably never see the light of day and thousands of photos that will not be seen by anyone but me.

        1. Well. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve seen you post. Like me, you’re not a one-trick pony…you have more than one artistic outlet. I’ve seen it multiple times in so-called right-brained individuals, but I think the current scientific community think it a myth. So, I guess we must “follow the science,” which is sketchy, at best. And downright laughable at times.

          1. Speaking of right and left brains. We knew a crazy lady who said she had brain damage from a car accident. She told us she felt lucky because the side of her brain that was damaged was the side she didn’t use. She was fortunate indeed. We called her “Half-brain friend!”

              1. You can’t imagine some of the weirdos and crazies I’ve known. I’m weird and very tolerant, of counterculture, so in some ways I think I’m a weirdo, crazy persons magnet.

  1. hi KT. There’s a guidance from a poet who taught me the most. Say that there, over there, is the poem (or painting) that best says what you most want to say. But the only, the only route getting to there is first to go here then here and here again. Don’t take that path and you never arrive where you wanted to be. The path is the path. So there’s nothing less about taking each step on that path. Allow expression. Trust it. Listen. Learn. Me, I think he’s right. That is the way I try to see.

    Keep going! And thanks for sharing your work with us. neil

    1. Thank you for your insightful comment, Neil. My painting journey hasn’t been at all linear; seems as if I approach it from several different angles, and go around in circles at times. Lots of lifting off of paint and redoing. And I’ve learned that my final painting never looks quite like my instructor’s. I suppose my path must not always be the same path he follows.
