While you're waiting for me to post another painting,
I've been painting it. 
I've been taking Wolf Kahn's advice;
paint a landscape because
no one will say you're crazy if you put three legs on it.
Needless to say, I'm paraphrasing,
but not by much; it's close to a quote.
 He also says painting landscape gives us permission
to be free, to make a mess.
I'm taking him at his word.

I've also been waiting, waiting to go back to Hawaii.
In two weeks.
Here's an iPhone daydream.

What kind of art supplies will you bring to Hawaii this year? I'm usual.

A great daydream house; obviously, you dream in color. Does this remind me of your dream house from a while back?

You don't need permission.

I am taken with the "spatter" and the color--especially the green. I:)

Can't wait to see the new painting and what happens when you try on a different mindset while doing it! Hawaii!! A great way for a mountain woman to get some ocean into her picture!

Taking acrylics, sketchbook and the trusty iPhone. Also an iPad, but the iPhone is my main squeeze.

Your memory is a scary thing.

Welcome! Your photographs are quite wonderful.

Splatters are never purposeful; it's why we like them.

Yeah, and if I follow WK's a advice, the ocean doesn't have to be blue.

Yup, the sea change might be pink.
