"Listen to the color of your dreams,"
(Tomorrow Never Knows)
Lots of travel the past month -- so much fun and re-charging too! With extra time to think outside the studio, I have been transforming my goals as a painter as well. Why not? I am painting for ME now, feeling my way into the subject, no longer worrying about the subject itself. The subject is the starting point -- for my dreaming and fun while at the easel.
It is truly exciting to be able to refine and re-imagine this painting dream -- that what keeps it interesting, non?
Below are some recent paintings:

This is an exciting week here in Atlanta -- lots of very prominent national plein air painters are coming in for the Olmsted Plein Air Invitational April 22nd - 26th; then the next week the Portrait Society of America annual conference will be taking place here as well. I plan to be inspired by it all and to have some fun too!!
