Portrait Of A Golden Angel

I did this painting on Sort of a dare ,in a Demo another srtist gave. I am not generally interested in Animal painting ,but I wanted to give it a whirl. The emphasis was on Light and leaving as much white paper as possible ,without having a formlessness I have seen in many wet in wet paintings.

I think this my first cat painting , if I can remember that far back.

"To Everything There Is A Season "

 This is not from the Old Song ,but from Ecclesiastes 3:1. It seemed appropriate and came to  me as soon as I  looked at the completed piece  .
      This is what I call a "Loose", watercolor . Gradations and important definition of what has already been put down ,

Snow On the Frog Pond

Thought you would like to see the Original painting used for my Blog Title .

When I first showed this it upset many Artist friends who thought I had left too much white space on the paper .

I have, nevertheless ,not changed anything because it is how I saw it.

I did follow the Golden Mean ,but I saw the Two-Thirds ,as a White Space symbolizing Pure Untouched Snow.

It seemed that nothing ,but the white paper could convey Snow better .So ,it remains until I get a better argument !

This is 22x30 Arches Watercolor .
