Even when I am not painting, I see in my mind how I would like to translate the scene that I am observing into the colors and shapes on the canvas. It is usually a pleasurable exercise which eventually may turn into a painting.
I am learning more about color and how the application of it draws us into the scene and guides us through. Focusing on the subtleties of the light , shadow and values, scenes unfold before my eyes.
I feel fortunate to have found this means of creative expression and plan to continue to observe the world through the lens of a painter. I don’t want to miss the small things that help complete the whole.
