This is my lazy month…I’ve been painting very regularly since just after Christmas and barely taking a break. Its time for some renewed energy to happen. What I’m doing now is looking at art….lots of it! I am getting revitalized about improving my brushwork these days. That happens naturally, but one has to make time to let it come through. I am spending afternoons making very small studies of particular aspects in landscapes where I want my brushstrokes to stay directly placed as they become painterly notes on my canvas . This is a very important part of an artist’s development.  I often say that we are only as good as our last painting. In other words, that’s what it was – then. This is now. Now is new. Transitions are a regular part of growth. So here is my last painting, just recently finished for our city’s 150th Anniversary – my contribution to my gallery’s upcoming show to celebrate this time period.
