A week ago, Loriann Signori suggested
we all try to do a memory painting.
This is the one I sent to her.
I've never consciously tried a memory painting before, though I suppose that whenever I've painted without a sketch or photograph, with only an idea of a place or time which left an imprint, it could be called a memory painting. As it turns out, while trying to successfully render a likeness can sometimes be difficult, trying to not be specific can be a good idea. The ideal, of course, is for either process to inform the other.
On February 10th, Loriann generously posted paintings done by nine talented artists who accepted the challenge here.
I love how different they all are.
Thanks for doing this, Loriann.
