Imersed in Painting
The last few days have been busy painting days - I have finished a few more small paintings, and today I started a big painting inspired by Mendocino Headlands. I also worked on my "Out of the Woods II" painting today - I have worked on it on and off since I first got here, and I think it is close to finished. It is one of those where I could continue working on it for months, but the key is to know when to stop! Since it is an imaginative/intuitive painting the key is to leave things for the imagination!
Tomorrow I have signed up to volunteer at the gift shop mid-day, and then back to painting!
The weather has changed these last few days and it has been cooler and overcast with a few showers - more typical for January. Tomorrow morning I hope to get out for a good walk along the Headlands for inspiration and some fresh air and exercise - I have been so involved in my paintings that I have neglected everything else.
