Casualty of Creation
If you look really closely, that is real live paint on the painting wall. Sometimes when you get lost in a painting you may not even notice that you accidentally painted on the wall but in this case, I will not get in trouble for it, it’s just an innocent casualty of creation. Actually, I rather like those little smudges of paint on the wall, they are like little ghosts of my past paintings, they tell a story.
With my latest painting, the first dab was the hardest…. but I love the end results of this landscape painting. Now, all around my studio are paintings everywhere waiting to be hung. Most still fall into my water, landscapes, skies and trees passions but I know the new gallery and city and bridge and neighbors and politics are seeping into everything I do.
I’ve had a good couple of weeks getting ready for being open. Already people are wandering in. We’re telling them that we are not open yet but the doors are not locked. With the really beautiful weather, we are loving Sturgeon Bay.
