Blue, A Watercolor

“Perhaps only people who are capable of real togetherness have that look of being alone in the universe. The others have a certain stickiness, they stick to the mass.”
― D.H. Lawrence

  1. There’s Caspar Friedrich’s Wanderer Above the Mist hung on your wall. Do you really have a copy of it there or just added it in the watercolor for effect? 😉

    Oliver Colors has recently got hold of a bit of ultramarine pigment, ground from lapis lazuli. He should make you envious…

    • I knew a room which held the painting…..so I painted the room and how could anyone forget the painting? It is beautiful. I will have to check out this “ultramarine” pigment…hmmmmmmmm……

  2. “And that is how I have cherished you–deep inside the mirror, where you put yourself, far away from all the world.” Am I wrong to see a mirrored self-reference in the Friedrich work previously mentioned?

  3. This is lovely. For me, there is something about the hair – giving some sort of protection, but also a great display of energy. (It’s lovely to know the background story of how you got hold of the paper as well!)
