8x10 pastel and watercolor on wallis board
The river is very full of water and glorious red mud. The contrast of the mud to the baby greens is compelling.
Today I met a someone on the canal who was full of questions of how an artist makes decisions and why. While I can only speak for myself..... it's true I don't set out to duplicate nature, nor do I think I can make it "better." I simply try to make a painting that makes a feeling, a kind of peace in this crazy world. How about you other artists out there?
