Art is continuous learning

I spent some time this afternoon learning to sketch. That’s what we artists call trying over and over to sketch something that we really want to capture. There is no substitute for repetition. I really want to paint an interpretation of the moose picture on our masthead. The landscape is within my grasp, but the moose…there’s the challenge. Therefore, I spent my time sketching moose. My sixth try actually looks like a moose. No, I won’t be sharing it on this site. More practice.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
