R. Henri, "In fact, technique can only be used properly by those who have a definite purpose in what they do, and it is only they who invent technique."
I am back on target. I revisited the Marsh Land painting and made some conscious corrections. Also was able to photo my painting I did on N.Y. Eve day. I am staying with the Wet Lands paintings until I feel extremely comfortable getting distance and the water to stay down. I am also experiementing with my greens and my skies. Florida because it is flat has glorious skies. I have a long way to go to actually invent technique but I am trying to paint with an awareness of what I am doing. Just have to get my 10,000 hours in.
After 60+ years, I have finally discovered my passion! I love painting as the process totally absorbs me and the results surprise me! As a retired nurse, wife, mother and now grandmother, painting affords me an opportunity to express myself in a total different manner. A whole new world has opened to me and I am even more aware of how beautiful and precious life is. I am reading and painting every day and I have been fortunate to have so many people help me on my journey. I have attended workshops by Gregg Kreutz, Susan Sarback, Stacy Barter, Gay Faulkenberg, and Terry Norris
