Carmel Beach – See Through Tree – Morning Light

Painting Carmel Beach in the Morning

Every morning I tried to arrive at Carmel beach during sunrise or before. I could keep this rhythm for almost all days.

Here I found beautiful colors, expecting those to fade quickly, I rushed painting this.

Love this painting. The tree still in shade. Almost a full palette of colors in the sky.

    Roos…..When I had the good fortune to join you on the beach at Carmel for a few hours, I told you of my admiration for your art and, perhaps just as importantly, your enthusiasm and love of painting. In short, I gushed!! Modestly you said that it was good to have others to serve as an inspiration, but that eventually I would move beyond that and become my own ‘energy’. I believe I understand that and hope that it is true, but I also hope that I never lose an appreciation and admiration for the heart of the true artist. There aren’t many, you know.

    As I read all your recent posts about your trip to California, I am energized and inspired all over again. Go Roos!!

      So grateful for your comment Bruce.
      I feel the same way: meeting people in kindred spirit, us painters, we should help each other out. We are all sensitive people. Loving beauty (us pleinair painters) connects us! I sometimes talk about this: there will come a time you can paint what you wanted to paint. And maybe it’s here already or almost here. But I can asure you: I know how it feels to come short. Short on expectancies from within. I felt that in the past. Inside I KNEW I could do it, but it didn’t come out. All I say: One day soon it will, and more and more everytime. That’s when you cross that border. Oh Joy! Yes joy. THEN I knew what Happy Painting was all about. No more fear. X X X Be well Bruce!!
