Les fruits de l'été - The fruits of Summer

I wonder if I will never tire to paint roses.

There they are growing in my garden. I cannot resist it.

I enjoy so much looking at them!

This watercolour is freshly finished.

First video on my blog

Well I am fascinated to have found at last a way to communicate without having to do multiple photos of my work.

I have found I can make small videos from my tablet and so there will be a lot more coming with explanations...

One thing you will have to put up with: My French accent.
45 years living in England and it still sticks to me!!!

The sound was not too good either but for a first one, I will say it is not too bad!

The painting can be found on Artfinder.com

TODAY'S GRANDMASTERS OF FINE ART


 Being an artist does mean obviously loving to create.
In my case I also have an incredible enthusiasm for other artists' creations.

Artists must enjoy sharing between one another their passion.
Through the years of painting, I have met and stumbled online on many amazing artists.

I have found that many of them were SO humble and had very little idea of how good they were!
We are now in a society who look at the Digital creations, weird designs done a computer, who look at some shocking Art receiving prizes!

It is not very good for the moral of all these talents that our generation ignores.

It is time to fight back for all of them.

For this reason, I have created the site:


It is in its infancy. Everyday, I find more talents. They will be added regularly.

EPHEMERAL

                                                 
"Ephemeral"
Acrylic on board 2015

I am very happy, I have at last created a canvas.
It has been a long time since I had done a serious still life.

I have a multitude of references with the roses I grow in my garden.
It is a matter to think properly about a setting.
I did not use photos of a setting.
I just added as it came in my mind.

The dish was next to me while painting it. I have added redcurrants. I have painted so many of them. I do not need to have some near me.

I thought the dark background on the right of the picture was needing to come down on the cloth and so I have added black cherries.

Well the lot is real Ephemeral. I cannot imagine those fruits lasting very long. They are a temptation!
As for the roses, without a vase and water.... gone in a flash!
