Something to share
A photo of me painting by fellow dog lover and photographer, Katie. Late in the day, Shenandoah Valley, and I am in my own little world. It is funny how absorbed you become in the painting process, whether outdoors or in the studio. Time passes without realizing. The actual painting of the painting is what gets me going. How to solve problems, how to put down on the canvas (or paper) your emotional reaction to the subject and how to convey that to a viewer. I hope I get it right at least some of the time. In the meantime, I will keep painting and enjoying the process.
