painting concepts is limitless

oil 36x36 work in progress
"Painting concepts is limitless..... painting subjects is finite. Know our intention. The lasting quality that is reflected to the viewer is intention." David A. Leffel Therefore painting is not just copying.
I continue to work on this painting (top). It was inspired by my Chincoteague plein air piece (bottom.)

Loriann, the concept for this painting and those of your recent works seems to be much more than I can put into words! Amazing really, when your subjects are not necessarily complex. Maybe there's a connection?

Good point Donna. You are so observant. I am choosing simplicity in order to enjoy complexity. Make sense?
BTW How are you feeling?

"Simplicity in order to enjoy complexity" makes a lot of sense if you consider that the painter and the viewer may not be capable of processing too many complex thoughts at one time ... or maybe that's just me :-)

I'm hanging in there, hoping to be able to paint again one of these days.
