One day while camping in Texas an RV pulled into the site with a couple that were nudists. When they heard I was an artist she couldn't wait to show me her sketches. As usual I had to create a cartoon for my daily journal. More about this in my next Blog.
My memory is short. I guess that is another way of saying it's bad. I don't remember if I put this painting up before. It is of an Indian ranch in Taos New Mexico. A former student of Ansel Adams looked at it and said paint the building red. Apparently he insisted on doing color photography even though his mentor preffered black and white and was told "if you insist on color put red in your photos". I thought that was a good critique of my painting but I left it the way I saw the scene.
I'm an old fart (pardon me, senior citizen) who spends most of the time painting or trout fishing. Trout fishing takes me into some beautiful places, especially here in northeast Wisconsin, and I often think that next time I'll bring my paints and leave the fly rod at home, but then I realize I can paint at home but I can't catch trout there.
