First my mountains. I am almost finished with this painting
although in the photo, it still has a bit to go.
I found an artist named Robert Yackel and I really liked a
painting he called New Mexico Sunshine, so for practice
I painted this but changed some things from his original.
Here is his website: Robert Yackel.
As I continue to practice and learn painting, I have discovered
that at times it is important to study those artists that inspire.
One way I do this is to try and match the style or brush strokes.
The top is my painting but, Robert Yackel paints in a way I like.
I do like a variety of artists and they do
influence how I see things. Being me and living my life
also grants my unique interpretation.
This is what I LOVE about creating things. When I see
something created, I get a window to the artist/person. I see
what they see as important. Some need new and top of the line
supplies, others need only their own minds and items about
to transform their thoughts to what they are creating.
I have always been this way. I love to make things.
I love to take things and re-purpose them.
I love to solve needs by making something instead of
buying it. My next project-well one of them is a biggie
and I hope to finish in the next week or so to share~
It involves all those that are important to me.
