I love this composition! This painting has such a spiritual connection with me. I’m calling it Harbor Cross. The main thing I was concentrating on was neutralizing some of my tube color tendencies. The other was this week's mantra:
It's been awhile, but I'm still here! I've been traveling and painting, getting ready to hang a show in California. I've got several plein air paintings that are about finished; this is one of them. I should have stopped working on this a few hours ago! I know I'm finished because I'm making more mistakes than progress. My goal: to keep these plein air paintings fresh. Not overwork them. My mantra this past week: Progress and not perfection.
