My own 'Painter of Light' ...

Once, many years ago, I wanted to paint something... but I didn't know what. So I stared at the blank canvas in my downstairs painting studio and decided to try my own 'Painter of Light' canvas. It just took a couple of hours to sketch it out.

I thought it was funny, of course... but it was fun all the same.

Of course I hated it at first... but then, years later I dragged it out and it didn't look quite so bad. Florals and painterly mushing of brushwork can satisfy the artistic soul I guess.

No doubt there's something to painting mature shrubbery that is bound to assuage discontent. Maybe I'll get back to it some day...
