6x11 oil on wood
Memory just takes in what's important. I keep practicing to heighten my awareness to the initial impression. What made the impact?
Here is a small painting done solely from memory. I used a scrap of wood given to me from my buddies down at the lumber yard. I LIKE wood. Firm, not fragile.
I close with a favorite quote from James Abbott Mcneill Whistler.
"To say to the painter that Nature is to be taken as she is, is to say to the player that he may sit on the piano."
He must have been quite a character!
