Tom from Colorado was kind enough to share where his NEW painting hung in his home. I really love how it sets the kitchen off and makes it come alive. It looks like it was made to go there!! Thanks Tom!!
Some artists see the finished piece before they even begin. Every color, texture, piece of the puzzle is mapped and ready for them to complete before they even begin. They have done sketches and color choices and really decided how it's going to go so there is just the actual doing to complete. Not me. I enjoy starting with whatever piece I get inspiration from first. It could be their eyes or starting with the darkest color or whatever I feel most definite on. Then the rest kind of unfolds as it may taking turns left and right whenever the mood strikes. It flows, I flow with it.
Taking the time to just watch snow fall and birds fly especially this time of year is therapeutic for me. I was fortunate enough to do both up in the White Mountain Lakes area over the holidays. So peaceful and soothing to the soul. This shot is January 1st, 2015 right when the sun was coming up. Ahhhhhhh, you can feel the wonder and the cold crisp blanket of snow.
I've always enjoyed having a tiny slice of lots of yummy things. I hope this blog is as scrumptious as a tiny slice of german chocolate cake with strawberry rhubarb pie, and a tiny piece of peanut butter/chocolate cookie!
