Well here you go pilgrim, see what I learned!
One of the blog sites I enjoy reading,(and viewing)
is Stapleton Kearns. Lately he's been explaining color,
useing music as a comparative.
Color strokes are notes~
I was moved to give it a try. The sun was picking up
a glare, but here it is, fresh as can be.
2.5 hrs. oils on gesso'd board. 6"x8"
I shot the non glare in the studio, but the color seems
washed out. I got a learning curve folks!
It just felt good to paint, Thanks Stape!

Thank you everyone! Nora, Celeste, Cindy and Judy!
Stape explained some things about color that got me thinking.
I'm hopeing to paint smarter. Actually I'm just hopeing to paint! Stapes information helps
me to move forward.

Hear the colors are there and also the will to paint to, you remember me that I am going late, but these later times something is holding me back, I should do some soul searching, and starting to throw some paint in my empty canvas and take you as example, good going Bill.
