Gratitude #4

How do you paint something you cant see?
Paint what's around it.
Air is another big one.

This challenge is a great one- I'm seeing the others and their breakthroughs and "aha" moments.
One in particular that got me was Liz Wiltzens painting of a pay phone  (WOW) and what she said about painting.
" So my intention to use the 30 in 30 challenge as an attempt to paint more loosely took a hard left today. I had a big 'aha' moment (yay!) The whole pursuit of painting looser seems a little misguided now. It's not about painting loose, or tight, or any other way. What matters is to paint as much like me as I possibly can. (Okay that only took 50 years)."

Hi Sally, I was in the group of Abington folks with the mosaic, and a friend of Helene's. I love your concept and your paintings! I'm following you and Pat I in this's inspiring! I especially liked your comment about "painting like me"- how true! Can't wait to see every day!
