Painting is a Journey

Starting a new painting is always a journey. Just as in a real life adventure, there is the planning, the organizing, the apprehension, the excitement and then the contentment that comes when I am home again with fond memories and new stories to tell.

The planning of a new work is as exciting as the anticipation that comes with a real life getaway. Like looking through the glorious travel brochures heaped upon me by my travel agent, I look through my sketchbook, and photo references for something that speaks to me at the moment, a place I want to explore for any number of reasons. I don’t need to wait for my ship to dock and me to board, I can go explore around the hills and the neighborhood to see what catches my attention. I’m off!
