"Spring, Eaton Canyon" ©

Allowing a painting to ferment in the studio lets me see details that need addressing one at a time, over time, rushing is impossible. I have been painting on this piece for several days. Stopping to paint a "daily painting" has been distracting and I am rethinking the process. The desire to paint better, paint well, paint consistently is overpowering. This painting is a step in that direction. Now it will ferment and I will respond. Eaton Canyon looked just like this 2 weeks ago, when I sketched the view. I couldn't wait to bring it to life on canvas.
