My friend, Lori Putnam, has a blog about painting, and for the month of October she’s stepping aside to let her friends take over. Today is my day to post, so as strange as it seems, I’m suggesting you leave my own blog and head over to her blog to see what’s going on this month. There are some fun posts by other artists. It’s worth checking out. My blog post is about the experience of seeing the world though the eyes of a painter, and how I’m most often inspired by the light and color of a scene.
Above is a painting from a recent trip I made to paint in Charleston, SC. It’s a great town, and I love painting there. I found this scene at the southern end of town when I spent the day painting with my friends Shannon and Jennifer Smith. I was there painting for an upcoming show at Anglin Smith Fine Art in November. The painting above is 16×20.”
