The first time we walked by this Toyon Boathouse on Balboa Island  intrigued me. What was on the porch spoke …


of a summer that had long become a faded memory now life  is on hold

we anticipate for winter to lose its grip




the boats on the waterside  – the winter air breathes “Wait” using winter to mend the sails, the nets, and more of such things





flowers do not wait in California there are always some blooming.


It took a long time to finish this tiny watercolor, am better with wielding a big brush, and cover a big canvas with oil paint. engrossed in the details taking much precious  time. As with the boat paddles, the chairs were waiting.

Cannot wait till the white door will burst open people getting ready to get their gear .

Watercolor,  6 3/4 x 9 inch, Boathouse Behind White Fence

the muted colors (except for the roof) and the drippy messy porch was the atmosphere that pervaded this little island

  1. I love your watercolor and I love the last picture with the intense blue sky and the tree silhouette! Here the snow is falling outside the window and spring is far, far away!


  2. Another lovely post, Jesh. You are an accomplished artist as well as a photographer!
    Many thanks for taking part in Floral Friday Fotos, hope to see your entry this week also.


  3. It must be a beautiful place, and it reminds me of many around these parts. Your watercolour is a lovely interpretation and I get the flavour!


  4. When I lived in Southern California the winters seemed so cold. Now that I live in British Columbia, I sun at the pools when I come south to visit in December. Funny how things seems so different.
