Late winter cold makes it hard to enjoy spring and get inspired to paint.
|Bundled up on our morning walk.|
Good light the last day or two, but still cool.
Searching for a motif in the morning light. My bag and supplies are in a cardboard box. Light and efficient, it works very well.
|Sporting my new hat from the farmers market.|
One of our morning walk routes takes us through this little borgo named "Gioveto". Setting up I am pleased that there is good light today. Just the sounds of roosters and barking dogs.
Standing to paint like this, below, requires focus and directness.
The painting will only take a short amount of time to actualize, I have to put in a life times worth of "feeling" into these moments.
It becomes an ebb and flow of what to put in , what not to put in...My feelings are at the end of the brush.
That is it. That is what it all comes down to.
The painting will reveal who I am and what I have to offer in this moment.
|Color, color, color.|

Distant medieval hilltop, modern times.
What does it all mean? Only you, the viewer can decide.
