"The Pirate Rogue" - watercolor painting from Rogue Renaissance Faire

I fell in love with Renaissance Fairs in 1998 when I went to my first in Atlanta, Georgia. It also wet my appetite for other events.

This is from 2011. "The Pirate Rogue" - watercolor painting from Rogue Renaissance Faire.
5x7" The costume is wonderful in its detail - a great mix of colors and textures. But how costumes like this get worn on such hot days, I will never know.

Art in the Park

A couple of months ago it was warm enough to venture out for a day in the park (Bear Creek). Art supplies packed weren't the usual traditional kind. For some reason I'm a bit 'off' of traditional art for a while, it doesn't appeal to me - too much planning and discipline. Anyway, I've been wanting to do some mixed media, especially incorporating some very old journal paper I have.

It was a very pleasant day. Not overly scenic, but a little creek that had the dog wading and drinking in it, and kids exploring its shores, made it interesting. A background of trees with fresh new spring foliage, in contrasting shades.

From where I sat it was quite relaxing for a change.
The art work isn't finished, the page is much larger - I am going to add some collage 'stuff' - it's still in planning stages, but some elements are coming together well.
Art can be where ever you find it, and doesn't have to be traditional or 'perfect'. Just enjoy!
