Each of us needs to find our element- the place where things we love to do and things we are good at, come together

To paint or not

” Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot
into the sun” (Pablo Picasso) and of course I would like to fall into the latter
category.

It is also true that I can spend all day negatively pondering my spot that looks
nothing like the sun, or I can pick the easy? route and not attempt painting
the spot at all…none of these add to my daily joy! By now you’re thinking, what
on earth is she rambling on about? Well, once again, I showed you the real thing
first, and because I am yet again moving, I am a bit late in posting the painted
version of those beautiful yellow flowers in Catching Sunshine. Yes, we are not
really talking about the sun….but the “sun” represents getting the subject just
right with a simplicity of brush strokes that will leave you in absolute awe…
or having stopped painting at just that point where less is more…

This may be a good place to stop...

Nope. I did not stop there but I quite like the "mosaic" effect.

Which one do you like better? Maybe I should learn to stop at one only!

  1. You bring sun to my being by your paintings…like middle one best…

  2. I would prefer the upper painting, the other one is a bit monochrome
