... to try

I am going to try.


I am going to try again to paint and post photos of the paintings I have done.

No promises.
No apologies.

I cannot not paint. I will always see my little world through the lens of "If-I-were-painting-this-I- would-do-it-this-way...." I love translating everything into dark and light patterns and making color decisions.

I love working.

I am going to try.

...it's been so long, I can't remember how to do anything......

I just spent a few hours painting in my studio....
I used to think I was an pretty good painter. All such confidence is gone.
That is probably a good thing. I have gotten tighter and tighter in rendering. Need to loosen up.

So that is what I concentrated on with a  small composition of a sunflower. If I can stand what I did by tomorrow I will post a photo of it (if I remember how...)

I have also started a landscape painting of an area of the river which I always find interesting. After I came back to the house after painting, I decided to smash into that landscape a bit too.... to loosen it.

I wonder if I can paint again????????

2014 was in many ways truly discouraging.
I will make 2015 be a better one!
