Nearly the look I want, there are so many looks, elegant, wan, whimsical, romantic, that only doing and practice gets to the variations. One needs broad knowledge to know in the beginning, to know if I do this I will get that sort of look. Realistic is not my goal or portrait work is not, I like that art, I just want sort of a story of mine or the person viewing.
it has been sotrmy here for 2 1/2 days horrific winds and rain. Flickering lights and small messes, small damage in this area some areas more serious damage. Night Song is about last night, limbs flying, hidden stars, and night birds. The other painting is about lost summer birds. These are journal pages, about how the mind wanders on a certain day.
