I can hardly believe that tomorrow I may finish my second painting this week! For years I have been taking photos of scenes that I see as possible paintings but never putting them onto a canvas. What has been making this happen this week? I think it is because I have decided not to just copy the scene I saw but to think about why I chose it and be free to make it say whatever I want it to say...to have the creative freedom to say in paint whatever I want that image to say. No opaque projector - I think I know how to use value but I have a lot to learn about using color and that is going to be my playground for a while.
