This watercolor made its debut last week on the blog of A Simple Jew. There’s often a beautiful image on the posts of that blog, a photo, a painting, a drawing. I was honored to be a guest painter.
The painting was inspired by Winslow Homer, a 19th century American watercolorist who is famous for his depictions of the sea. Click on the image to enlarge.

What a fine watercolor! “Louis” likes the luminosity of watercolors vs. the opaqueness of oils.
How Lovely…there is a lot of emotion in this.
You can be honored to be a guest painter on my blog any time! I like the melancholy of this painting.
More seriously, your mentioning Winslow Homer reminds me that I need to do a bit of research on him before mid-october. Any ideas?
Ilana-Davita, OK, we can discuss guest painting possibilities via email. It seems to be a great incentive for me to take out the paintbrushes.
You could spend tons of money via Amazon buying books on Winslow Homer. Or you can go to images.google.com and be astounded by this man’s work.
I have seen Winsler Homer’s works in many museums, from NYC to Washington DC to California, and his works always amaze me., leaving me in awe.
How very beautiful. You’ve really captured the essence of how it feels to be out there paddling.
I like this Leora..it makes me think of one paddling alone against the rest of the world..guess that is where my mind is today..
