|Middle Of May oil 8x10|
This humble setting turned out to have everything I needed to work out a design idea that I could invest myself in as a ready vehicle to express my love for the Texas Hill Country, where I live, and do most of my painting. I'm learning to set my vision for seeing the small things better, when I'm out to paint. Then, when I run across a "whopper" I'll know better how to take advantage of it. I think that in painting, what makes for beauty isn't so much the thing we find, but how we see it, and what we inject into it.
