Though it has no water, nor is it my usual landscape, I'm glad the painting which achieved my goal of this national show is one that represents Florida's Gulf Coast, my home and where I love to paint. You can find it in Fine Art Connoisseur magazine's feature on the American Impressionist Society Show (October issue).
Studying Impressionist Art trains my brain to see and think Impressionistically. It's a painted language where you are allowed to put the emphasis where you desire. How and when the poetry stops, is all up to you. The luscious texture of this genre is what compels me to the easel, and to the museum shows. Oh! Also I'm looking forward to the French Impressionist works at the Denver Art Museum, "Finding the Light", a tour and lunch sponsored by Fine Art Connoisseur. I will have to write a post afterwards and tell you all about it.
