Pastel Brick Building and Flowers
I am challenged to sketch buildings that aren't rendered too stiffly yet remain solid and grounded ... and so I keep trying to get on paper the 'feel' I have for them rather than simply their form. I have to admit that I haven't quite achieved what I had hoped to with this, so my apologies, Jen ...but I'll keep trying. And I thank you once more!
Busy time this weekend -- we visited an art show in Chapel Hill yesterday -- wonderful works! It's funny viewing art through one's own experience and challenges of creating paintings...somehow you see more of the 'hand' of the artist than you saw before ... beyond the picture painted. A very interesting experience.
My prayers continue for those affected by Hurricane Ike ... it has been a horrible, disasterous storm.
