Inspired by the Glow of Eventide Along the Water
I am still working to bring the 'splatter and splash' to my landscapes. Yesterday, my friend Linda came over to paint while her husband joined the jam group to play music. I was teaching her how I 'splatter' and after I tossed the paint, asked her what she saw.
To my surprise, she suggested a landscape -- and so while she worked on sunflowers, I worked to 'see' what she saw-- and so this landscape came about. It was fun -- and I'm very grateful she helped me see the splatters through her eyes...!
C's jam went so well -- music was grand, and our neighbors came by as well to hear the group. Some had to leave early when, yep, another storm came up, and battered our pretty flowers with heavy rains. Mercy, the area between the house and garage was running water as though it were a river! The hot-storm-rain pattern is with us this week - I hope it doesn't rain out our trip tomorrow.
