I am enjoying painting this scene and adding my own spin on it. I let the pathway continue beside the shed, to keep us in the picture as the open doorway faces out of the picture. And in order to see the ocean, it needed a higher vantage point.
There is something exhilarating about painting – the whole creative process, the learnings and the discoveries, and always – the challenges. I started painting in watercolour when the children were leaving home. A few years later, my artist mother suggested oils, and it has become a passion. I share my journey with this blog as I stretch myself with the exhuberant intention of painting daily.
