Sometimes the quietude of Winter is a good thing. I finally found time to create my new website! It has been awhile but I now have a nice white studio to paint in and have started a new series of botanical paintings for 2015. It is always slow work, this type of painting. The observation, the brainstorming of an interesting composition and the slow process of adding thin layers of translucent color to render the subject cannot be rushed. That's the point for me. Not rushing. It takes time to make a friend and it takes time to understand Nature.
"Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”, Georgia O'Keeffe
