While Knowing Other Things Need Doing




Painting, that what I chose to do, in a messy art room, on a day when garden needed tending, and house needed keeping. Just because it feels good to paint, I didn't even have an idea, I don't go by anything just draw and paint. However I am seeing artists I respect a lot doing some different poses and I like that. very motivational to see. Sometimes when there is very little extra time, painting what is comfortable feels just right. A couple years ago none of this mixed media art or faces were the least bit comfortable.

I love to just look and find all of the elements that you put into your art--very serene-like too.

Your love of gardening is so wonderful...the way you bring it into your art....there is such a "lightness" to your art...I don't know another way to say it...and I love the layers as well....
