I PAINT WHAT I SEE!

I freely admit that I exaggerate! I'm not embarrassed. Reporting the facts doesn't interest me.  When I see something that inspires me, something that has the seed of beauty, I get excited about what could be. Here, I was walking the trail that runs along a favorite creek, watching for the light, water, limestone and plants to conspire.  When the basic elements come together, the game is on.  I rearrange, extend, trim, add, leave out, change sizes,  and dramatize whatever is there.  It's wonderfully fun, and my embellishments don't hurt anyone.  I'm a storyteller not a journalist.
