Paint all day

Week four of 6. Painting is hard, challenging, wonderful, exhausting. "Did you ever make a mess?" the teacher said today. "You know how to draw. Let yourself make a mess."

So I came home, studied an old photo, got out the big brushes, and painted.

What do you want to say? Why do you want to say it? What marks support your message? What color is it? What temperature? How does it taste? Sketch, learn, explore, then put away the drawing, she says.

After dinner, more painting, I hope.
