Bull Lilies

I haven't posted for awhile as it seems I've been on the road so much lately traveling to far away places to visit good old friends.  This painting was started at a weekend retreat held here at Manitou Beach awhile back and I finally had some time to get back at it.  Today I found myself nit picking away at it, a sure sign either to call it done or put it away again for awhile! I absolutely love the abstract nature of nature and definitely want to continue to explore that quality in my painting.  I don't think it is physically possible to paint every ripple in moving water, and why bother.  I like making it up based on the experience I have being in the presence of such an event.

Peter Frampton in my ears "Line on my face," a glass of Italian red wine within reach, and I made it to March 11, the third and last (for now) "Kicked by a Duck."

And I'm in agreement with you, that you don't have to paint every ripple. I don't think I have to write what's literally true, cause I've been there, or have heard of it, or heard it in a pretty good story.

I want to talk with you brother, sometime I wanna talk with you 'bout what's going on.
