I’m more of a craftsman making ceramics, I’ve been doing it a long time more so after retiring, lol hobbies are my job now I guess. I  moved over two years ago but still have not set up a ceramic studio to work in. When I began metal detecting I’d made a plan to paint some of the things I see, rocks, landscape… pretty basic. I’d never painted on canvas before I’m not a painter, but without the studio something to try maybe now is a good time to learn? I did the first one a view of Vegas from the desert to the south, the second attempt a morning sunrise at gold basin and the one I’m working on now is my 3rd try I’ve repainted a half dozen times, I experiment and then wind up sanding the canvas. This is from a picture I took 8 years ago it’s a view up Haskel Creek, WSPA 2 in Sierra county, Ca where the dirt road cuts across the dry creek. It’s got a ways to go and amateurish at best but I’m learning.

I like it. I'm no artist, nor great appreciator, but forgive me if I insult you by my take on your painting:

It's sorta whimsical, kinda like a dream. I really like the flashes of gold in the rock.

I think it's really well done. 👍 IMHO you could stop right there. 🙂

It is whimsical and ATM a little beyond my control any other way, for the good or bad it’s not important at this stage so not insulting in the least, I appreciate the critique and agree. It took me a long time and lots of practice learning ceramics, this is no different I don’t think.

just a couple during fabrication.

I'm not any kind of art critic by any means, but it certainly appears you have the ceramics down to a fine art form and well on your way as a painter. Thanks for showing some of your work. HH Jim Tn

Are those ceramic objects fountains? Wow you really are talented. 👍 The first is other worldly, the second, well let's just say Is know a bunch of boys that would like that as a fishing decoration. 😀 I'm sure painting will be another talent! Really is already.

Jim and 350, thank you for the compliments, I began ceramics in 1969 in high school with no particular affinity that I could identify. In college I took it again with a more positive outcome. I lived near the school and before long the professor gave me my own set of keys to the classroom and kilns, I’d often run the firings on weekends and at night.

the first picture was taken at the makers fair in Alameda, I was asked to come out to give throwing demonstrations, the second picture is a lidded jar, I’d had a very good firing at least 15 years back I was showing off a 1 in a thousand glaze result and intended as a compliment my friend remarked it would be beautiful with flowers in it, I laughed and said “I didn’t need flowers” from there on out began making them flowers included.

Thought that looked familiar. Never knew the name of the creek.. I thought it was part of Howards creek. Off to the right out of the picture are some rocks I usually hide my keys under lol. 

Nice work Clark looks like you are doing well.
