August 1,2018- took the photo of painting in progress yesterday. did not paint today. let oils set a little. sketched instead.
I changed on the go in this work much. abstracted forms.. images.... layered transparent applied hues.. really worked intensely submerged in this image. is very beautiful. i view hrs. and not tire. calms.. peaceful. always find more places in this atmosphere, eyes specially enjoy. think, not a stroke of brush i want to miss.. all connects to the vision.. of the whole .. the feel of.. its voice is magical ,poetic.. alluring. pulls me. will see, if i continue tomorrow.
