The Shape of Things

The crazy thing about being a somewhat realist painter is I am not painting things (people, birds, dogs, marsh grass, buildings) I am painting shapes. We are not a camera and the process of painting is kind of like magic. An painter looks at their subject and interprets what they see in to shapes. The size, color, shape & value of the shapes magically creates something we recognize. It always amazes when it turns out. Happy painting, happy seeing! Isabel
