Occasional thoughts,reminiscences and ideas from the artist Darrell Baschak
Wednesday, March 7, 2012
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.
