From our most prolific painter

John reflecting with his note book

My painting workshop crit!

My “crit” was prefaced by Yves asking me to repeat something I had said earlier in the day – “I struggle to find a “higher” meaning/reason/purpose for my painting.”  On the one hand, I enjoy doing fairly traditional landscapes.  However, it does then allow me to paint a more rapid, more expressionist version where I am better able to capture the “essence” of the scene in front of me. Although it is not yet perfectly clear, I think there is a connection between this higher meaning and this essence.  Yves suggested that I go away with my wife for a year, to a special place and work on clarifying the link! Yes!
