“Dry”. 22×30. Drybrush Watercolor on paper.

Drybrush painting of dry brush! I picked up this branch at a playground. My son was playing with his friends and they were throwing it around. I brought it home and kept it in my studio for a long time. One day I picked a 22×30 full sheet of watercolor paper and started this still life painting. I worked on it for many days. At night I will set it up on my kitchen table and paint. I started this painting as kinda double portrait of ¬†tree branch and ¬†watering can. As I continued to paint, nothing changed with the still life. But, things happened that gave personal meaning to this painting. May be it is a portrait of one of the hottest summer. Or things that fail. You fail sometime and carry that burden with you. May be it is a self-portrait 2012…
