Watercolor (unfinished, by me) of daughter.

I’ll post the finished if it comes out well later. Not a bad start if you consider I have not painted anything in 25 years. The art student selling me Winsor & Newton watercolors did tell me it’s never too late to start, which made me feel half in the grave…


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Such a challenge to get a likness. What an amazing effort.

    So far, so very good. For what it is worth (less than nothing by today’s currency values), I would say, “Stop now!” I hope you don’t stop.

    Congrats! Not painted in 25 years? Keep doing it, you must.

      Thank you. I never had the confidence then to go to art school or even try much. I didn’t realize that you have to develop skill over time…

        It’s by no means too late. Quite the reverse. I hope you will perservere. Alice Kneel ( sp?) Did not begin until later in life.
