No rain this time around but it looked like it could. A little windy and chilly on the beach today but not as cold as yesterday. Had some fun trekking out to this spot as the sand was quite mushy and oddly the parts that are wet were more compact. I wonder could there be quicksand on the island. If there was this spot would be a candidate. Here's one of the tankers lined up. About four passed through the channel heading out in the Gulf of Mexico and on the Horizon they were lined up presumably waiting to head in tomorrow. Traffic on the high seas down here. I'll take a better photo tomorrow as it has to much glare.

This is one of those wet days I like to go out and paint. To me, these days are interesting and you never really know what you might see. As I was painting along of course it was raining before, during, and after I packed up. Luckily I was able to get it down before it became wet enough the paint wouldn't stick, then it's just time to pack up or grab another canvas.

Occasionally there will be that day where the weather is just right, hasn't been raining in quite a while, sunshine out, puffy clouds passing over, and a nice set of waves rolling in and to your surprise the water is fantastic. Not that often but it does happen here in Galveston. I've seen it almost 2 foot of visibility in the water, not bad for such a shallow coast.

If you missed the demo Saturday you surely missed out. A good turn out at the demo even though there was Dickens on the Strand going on. Finding a parking spot was pretty hard to do that day. Thank you for all who showed up.

Lot of rain today. But that doesn't mean it's a bum day to paint on a rainy day. Those days can be fun as the scenery does change and colors and values also. In fact, trees sag on a rainy day especially when they get soaked.  Things become a little darker when wet.

For some reason I kind of like poems lately. In college I studied John Keats as part of studying poetry in one of the English Lit courses. I wasn't in to poetry but I did find it interesting to study then and learning about who Keats was. I do remember one thing, he died very young do to an illness. 

The Watcher
by Randall Cogburn

Thirty seconds pass
A presence is near.
It knows no boundary
To human folk but
A glimmering fear

Not, or who
They may call
Says who under
The Oak on a
Cold winters day.

If around
No questions where?
Doubt for not
The Watcher
Is there.

Had some time to paint outdoors today but under the cover of the porch as it rained for quite some time. A view just off the back porch where I sweep my shavings from working on woodworking projects. I didn't realize this until now but the concrete block shown I have sitting there has sunk over time and sort of inspired the poem below. 


Weight of Things
by Randall Cogburn

A Sawyer cuts
With the weight
Yet forces none
Such trouble
As it's done.

Over to plane
The old way
Less prone to break
Yet no mistake
And top pay.

Now in rhythm
The shavings fall
A familiar sound
So sharp
but flat.

A Clean breeze
Few sweeps
Before an hour 
All done. Scribbled:
Play with Cat.

Ever wish you had time to go to the beach on your lunch break. Yeah me too. For those vast majority who aren't five minutes away from the beach here's a view for you. Don't wonder off to long you just might call in sick the rest of the day.
