Destroyed and then repainted in ink and watercolor. :)  (Due to using old frisket that was only semi-sticky.)  Initially spilled tea on the picture, let it sit about a year, and further demolished it.  Fortunately, was able to remove much of the blue paint spill by using rubbing alcohol on the watercolor board.

Several weather-related instruments and themes are featured on the castle. This painting is 9x12 inches.

One of three paintings that were set aside as a result of, in this instance, intimidating rework needed for the painting.  In others, the loss of the pen that goes with my stylus.  Another set aside since it's a HUGE painting, (for me), in favor of smaller projects.  In general, a very bad artistic block that I'm still trying to get over, at least I hope.

Dear Christy,

Your works would make wonderful illustrations for poems, stories, fables, books, etc.

There is a poem about a griffin in a book that I remember from childhood. I will never forget it. It is sealed in my memory and pops up all the time, even now that I am almost a half a century old. Your work reminds me of the illustration that was printed with that poem in my childhood book.

That is the power of art. Not only is art a vehicle of expression for the artist, but it comes to life when viewed, having so many associations and connotations for various viewers. Art can live on and on in the mind, too, as we remember and are influenced by it.

Congratulations on a wonderful gallery. I sent you a bunch of favs with comments.

Keep on creating...
-Merton:)
