A New View Around Every Corner
Funny how the most deeply felt “sensory story” is the hardest to put into words. Maybe that’s why I wish to paint the landscapes to make an attempt to describe the breathtaking beauty of the area.`
Each day, each corner, each climb over a stile, each hill we summit, it seems, holds a picture perfect photo op.
Many times the amazing view was behind us.
The fields laid out like colorful artistic quilt blocks, the trees bring to mind fairytales and the classics in literature, streams and rivers, buildings that have stood the tests of time, and the wildflowers blowing in the wind, are a feast for my soul.
Day 3, Painting #2
Go Easy On Yourself
This second painting was really challenging for me. I would like to paint it again. I don’t feel like I expressed the beauty in this simple posie, backlit in the morning sun. A key point to finishing this challenge is to remember that it’s all about experimenting, improving my skills by painting each day and not feeling like I need to paint a gallery worthy painting in one day. Go easy on yourself, Challenges are intended to be hard, to stretch our abilities, embrace the challenge!
to arouse or stimulate especially by presenting with difficulties <she wants a job that will challenge her>
