Time to Paint
Time to get back to what matters most to the owner of these hands. Well, perhaps not most, because certain people in my life matter most. But my residence is now spiffy clean and I can concentrate on my art. I cannot concentrate with household matters on my mind!
I find that often I lack the expertise or knowledge to translate what I am feeling to paint and canvas. Perhaps a little more concentration or involvement of 'self' is required.
So back to the 'drawing board'. I took out my original sketch of the scene; one familiar in the Northern Ontario landscape at this time of year. I studied, contemplated, mused over this sketch last evening and I will make one more attempt and include some foreground and just see where it goes. Today I will attempt to translate more spirit rather than object on the canvas.....I hope!
Wish me luck, I feel I may need it!
