Waterfall in Barcelona - and Haiku #251




Painted a couple of years ago from sketches made in a park in Barcelona. It is watercolour strengthened with some body colour.




Haiku  #251
No snaps of mum and dad
no more albums in the attic
now they've gone digital

I've had a nightmare or two regarding all those precious images sitting on my hard drive ....

Your watercolour is beautiful!

(I may have asked before, are your paintings available for purchase?)

Yes, the coveted family portrait box. Interesting observation and beautiful watercolour.

You are a man of many talents Mr. King.

Oh dear I'm so frightened that one day the whole cabbouch will suddenly disappear from the screen and I'll be left with a few boxes of 1960 aqnd 70's black and white
2" by 2" photos where I have to squint to actually see them!
but love the watercolour you are very talented.

Putting family photos in a family album is best. When your computer breaks down you could loose the lot. May the force be with you.

From Therese B. -- "now they've gone digital" is quite metaphysical

Me too, when I read the article.
A few years ago I would gladly have sold stuff, but these days, not doing much in that way, I'm hanging on to them. Sorry, but no originals.

Paul
That's the thing - no more shoe boxes!

Teuvo
A warm welcome to you, and thanks for commenting.

David
Thanks

Gerry B
Welcome and good of you to say so. I remain unconvinced, though.

Gerry S
Thanks for that - yes, the other side is that we have the shoe boxes not in the attic - but most have faded.

Windsmoke
That is the nightmare, exactly.

Therese B
Hadn't thought, but see what you mean.

The actual photo prints we do have are getter more precious by their scarcity. Even though printing our own digital snaps is easier, I don't think many computer buffs do it. Only time will tell if we regret the digital take over.
But art like yours will still win hands down over any camera image.

Love the colors in this painting! Very nice feel.

Hi David, I just recognized your site to my Saturday Serendipities. All the best.

Hi there, I was sent here by Paul C. Great watercolor, and I simply love that haiku! It speaks the truth.
