I used to love painting from my imagination. Now, after a few years of painting from life and what I see in front of me, I wonder if I can go back. There is an amazing artist named Jill Carver.....she said "artists should be poets and not journalists". I love that simple statement, it says so much....and it speaks to me and what I'm hoping to accomplish in my own art.
I want my paintings to be poetry....
If I only paint what I see, am on on the right track? That's my question to myself lately.
Thank you for looking....and reading.
