Sunday on the Lake


This is the latest Karin Jurick challenge .....a gal rowing on Lake Michigan. 12" x 20" on Arches 300# cold press paper. Couldn't help but be reminded of all the wonderful Winslow Homer paintings of water.....I love looking at them. The one at the right is Homer's "Glouchester Harbor," oil, 1873.
All of the Jurick rowboat submissions look so similar. I usually try to do something different. If I had time to do this over I would just put a giant rubber ducky on the lake.

Nice work, Diane!

Thanks Liz. There was quite a sea of sameness of this challenge. Hard to tell some apart.....including mine.

Sheila said...

Wow.... love your water color choices. This is why Artist's Magazine loves your work!

Diane Morgan said...

Thank you kindly, Ms Sheila. I listened to Born Again American today. Awesome.

I like the way you handled the paint and subject. I also really enjoyed catching up with your blog. Nice images and ideas.

Ahh...but I think this is prettier and more saleable than a rubber duckie!

Diane Morgan said...

Thanks, Deb. It actually looks better in person. I don't know...I'll bet a rubber ducky would be pretty popular :-}

great reflections for your entry of DSFDF, love it.

Diane Morgan said...

Thanks Dominique. It's kinda hard to appreciate each DSFDF entry when there are so many, and so many are similar. Thanks for your comment.

Diane Morgan said...

Thanks Maria for checking out what I've been up to.

This is great as it is Diane, but you are right so many look exactly alike, the rubber ducky would have definitely put it over the top!

Diane Morgan said...

Hi Dana! I may still do the duck. It's calling my name. Love your portrait. I pulled out my last self-portraits and they're many years old. Need to do a new one. Instead of a duck...in this case I'm chicken :-}
