Teachers come to us when the “student” is ready. We are all students -- students in life and in art and in love. Life is a learning experience.
And art, like golf or music or dancing, is always a learning experience. Sometimes the message comes from a book or a movie or a song. And, sometimes, the teacher is yourself.
When I reach a place where I am not sure how to get the result on the canvas that I want, I sit down and go back through my older paintings and see what I love about them. Often times, I am amazed at the painting and wonder -- HOW DID I DO THAT?????
This is one of those paintings!!!!
