Carmel, California!!! I gotta tell ya, it was so exhilarating for me to get to go someplace new, to be experiencing the terrain of the Pacific coast, that I could barely paint. Unlike my last post, where I returned to the same location, I was well aware that this day could never be repeated. Probably a one-time event that I tried to absorb enough to last a lifetime, should I never return.
I had taken in SO much during the previous days of American Artist Weekend with the Masters. After my first two color studies this last day, I just had to break loose and paint intuitively, with no regard to: Should that shadow be warmer or cooler? I finally got slap-happy with paint, and that one is my favorite.
Today I got this text: [baby Joel says, "I gotta go potty" and Runs to the bathroom --- but he forgot to pull his pants down! Sara says, "Really, he couldn't figure that one out"! Lol."] I wasn't ~That~ bad, but I could relate. "Sometimes you get too Excited to Think!"
