Seeing with an Artist’s Eye

louisana landscapeDon’t ask me how it is done, it just has to be the eye that God made for me to see like this!  I look back at some of my old paintings and wonder how I did it, and am just speechless!  I don’t even remember where I took this photo, but it had to be some where near Morgan City, LA.  And then here you see how I made a painting of that particular scene and I think it is just wonderful how it came out. yellow field, LA No one helped me do it, like being in a class and being influenced by a teacher.  It was done when I was using acrylic paints, and an 18 x 24 inch canvas, and I don’t even remember who I sold it to but am so glad I have a photo of it!  I could actually look it up in my log book and probably find out who has it, but I don’t remember what title I gave it, but know it must have been in the late 1970’s.  I number each painting I ever do and list it in my log book.  I have thousands listed.  If I didn’t log my paintings I would wake up in the middle of the night wondering where a certain one was!  Paintings are like children to me, you have to know where you put them or what happened to them!  Paintings are my productions and I am very proud of them just as I am of my daughter and my son.
