I have been painting landscapes in Acrylic and am trying to get the majestic feeling of the light and the use new and bold colors. The palette is very provocative and I am sure will strike some viewers as garish but so be it. I think I am just starting to understand the old adage that an artists job is to be creative, unique, and interpretive and I feel pretty strongly that this work has all three of those qualities. It is my goal to make this fairly expressive and impressionist work a major direction for the new year. I believe that changing and following new paths is the secret of growing as an artist and I really have never been content staying in one place for too long.
