Masters Study – Edward Hopper, Lighthouse at Two Lights 1929

2.5″ x 3.5″ watercolor ATC

I really became a big Edward Hopper fan during this exchange.  Here is a link to the original Hopper painting.  In looking back at them now, mine seems much lighter than his, but that’s okay.  It was so fun to do.  (Imagine that…. me having fun! :D)

I got today’s quote from my little book by Gary Ryan Blair, “Goals – The Ten Rules for Achieving Success“.  I cannot be sure which Bob Nelson he was quoting, so I don’t have an author’s bio for you today.  I found Bob Nelson quotes from a motivational speaker,  a comedian,  and a host of others.

    Once again, a neat painting that you put your own take on. The Hopper landscapes and architecture had this moodiness or darker tone to them. 🙂 I love this that you did, Beth, because you could not help but insert that bright and fun spirit of yours into the painting. This is bright and active and his is somber. Don’t know any other way to put it. I am enjoying these!

      Awww, thanks so much, Leslie! I do subconsciously inject a lighter spirit into everything, it seems. I don’t even realize it, until someone lovingly points it out. That’s the ultimate compliment. Thank you!
