Perspective. It has special meaning to me at the moment.
Put aside the hot topics of money, politics, and religion. Focus on visual perspective.
You see, on Tuesday, my blog friend, Teresa, drove us to Canon Beach, Oregon for the afternoon. We had a yummy seafood lunch at the Wayfarer. Then Teresa found the perfect spot for us to work on watercolor paintings of Haystack Rock.
Teresa is a wonderful, interesting friend from whom I feel I learn something new each time we are together...and I have a lot of fun in the process!
Tuesday afternoon we sat side by side to sketch and paint. As in so many skills, Teresa is way ahead of me in knowing what she is doing.
Although we were looking at the same seascape, we each picked a different angle to sketch.
After two enjoyable hours, Teresa had a lively painting signed with a flourish and my painting still wasn't/isn't finished, but you can see what we painted by clicking here.
In order to finish my painting, among other things I need to adjust the perspective of the horizon I sketched...otherwise I have the Tillamook Rock Light floating on thin air! But I loved the process of sketching and experimenting with strokes of paint. Very satisfying!
Here at home recently I enjoyed the perspective of a Trillium flower my oldest SIL snapped in a photo in our woods with his phone. Then this morning I enjoyed a perspective next to our front yard hose, of our little apple tree full of white blossoms. Also, I enjoyed seeing flurries of white wild cherry blossoms which landed on our front yard flower gardens and our gravel driveway.
In the perspective I shared with you of the preemie blanket I am knitting, the blanket is folded in half. I am making good progress on it and enjoying how the self-striping yarn is flowing from row to row.
What is your perspective?
