  • Lucian Freud changed his style drastically in his sixties, and painted for another 20 years always striving for more. It’s inspiring to know the learning can never cease, there’s always something new, more..

  • Jerry, thanks for reminding me that ‘new’ is not always better and that painting is almost never ‘easy’. If it were, then where would the challenge be, how could we keep learning and discovering more of the puzzle? I will keep focusing on the process rather than product and just enjoy where that takes me. Its all about the thrill of the discovery. : D

    How fascinating…to see the close up of the activity of the busy street scene…by just adding marks of colour…it works so well…magical. Thank you.

      Thank you. I guess I would call it “getting it through the color.” And it doesn’t hurt to treat everything one sees the same way. Plus it is more fun.

    Thanks for these encouraging words! I want to get “swept away” more–without even trying. 😉
