A few weeks ago I painted autumn trees on a blocked canvas. It called me back this morning. I kept looking at it, "it needs more depth and detail" I thought.In Maree's Saturday Chat on Redbubble she explains: Photography allows us to express ourselves through an art form. We notice a beautiful landscape or an old man’s lined face and we want to capture it. Each of us will have a different reason to do so but, essentially, we want to create something. However humdrum our nine-to-five lives may be, the creation of an image makes us an artist. It feels good.
The same can be said about ART: the creation of an image makes us to feel good!!
The picture above made me think of the Bushveld, mopane trees in autumn, dry grass and crickets singing. (Acrylic on a blocked canvas, for sale)
