Someone Who "Gets It"
Last night I had a nice compliment on my work. Not the usual comment about my use of color though.
This person said "when I see you paintings it reminds me of what I want to be doing this summer!"
I really liked that comment because I realized that this woman "gets my work". I am not a ground breaking, cutting edge artist. I paint what I love; which is the land, the sky, the water, even architecture.
A hammock just hangin' out by the water waiting for someone to plop down, swing back and forth and watch the leaves fluttering in the breeze.
It is my hope that the viewer sees themselves in these scenes and enjoys the moment captured in paint. And then I hope they let their imagination take over to write the rest of the story.
