Things I Don't Do Anymore


I painted this Litchfield Road in oil several years ago. The original painting has long since been sold and all that remains are a few offset lithograph cards that I had printed, and the memory of taking the photograph from which it was painted.

I don't paint from photos anymore. I haven't for many years now. I much prefer the joy and challenge of heading into nature to capture the image as I perceive it and not as the camera sees it.

Just my preference now. Nonetheless, this painting was quite nice. I was happy with it.

And thanks to everyone who left comments on the Wee Goddess post - I really appreciate it! Great food for consideration!
