I believe that there are many gorgeous views which no one is privy to, existing for God alone. But when He chooses to invite me in and we see it together, this is ART whether my camera is present or not. A typical scene from beautiful Suches, Georgia
I am really pleased with this painting, which I did as an exercise in Chris diDomizio's class. Though my likeness to John Singer Sargent's painting is not exact, it does communicate what I personally saw when I viewed the original at the Kimbell Gallery in Dallas/Ft. Worth.
This painting originally was an apart of my iPhone 365 collection as a photo. I loved the image so much that I painted it. In all actuality, the only reason I took up oil painting was to paint my iPhone photography. It has been a wonderful journey!
