Creativity is a Learning Experience
To create something, anything,
plant a garden,
make a bookshelf,
it's all creative and it's always a learning experience.
Is there ever a point where you know it all?
I'd have to say no.
There is so much to learn and there are always new materials,
once you think you've got it, something changes,
and then you find there is something new to learn.
In my quest to have my own in studio art school with me as the student,
I'm learning so much and always finding more things I don't know.
I've been working on animals and I painted my cat Purdy.
The painting is not very purdy, so you won't be seeing it.
Then I worked on tweaking another painting I did last year.
The reference for this barn is somewhere in Logan County, OH.
This barn is not quite abandoned, but almost.
It's an interesting structure and it was a frigid day when I was there and took this photo.
The painting is dark and foreboding.
It's a little 5" x 7" acrylic on a board and again I wasn't really happy with it,
so, I can't really say I tweaked it. I basically started over with it leaving in the barn.
But of course I had to change the barn, at least warm it up a little.
It still looks old and cold
but a little warmer.
As I said, I basically started over, but I learned so much about warming up snow.
Doesn't that sound weird.
Today I warmed up snow.
