On Sunday I drove to the top of a mountain because I wanted to feel as though I was standing on, well, the top of a mountain. Naturally, I want to incorporate that into my art, so here are a few preliminary sketches:
All of my paintings start out as feelings as much as images, and I know I’ve succeeded when what I see on the board matches what I feel. I haven’t quite captured the feeling yet, but I am getting there. As with the trip up the mountain, it’s a journey.
