talk to yourself

Yes, that's right, talk to yourself. That means, whether on site or in the studio, always begin by asking yourself, "what is my real interest?" Narrow it down. My interest in this field was the feel of vibration in the oranges of the grasses, not the sky. There is a slice of sky simply for the contrast to make the field grasses have a counter point.  The sky might be another painting...another day. Cropping is important, whether done with your fingers or a tool, you need to narrow down the focus.

Now I am off to catch my flight for Sedona...till later.
