"Greenbelt Creek Bed" 10x8" Oil

The scorching heat combined with moving shadows
across the stage was enough to keep me painting, and
fast. I enjoy painting at a quick pace anyways, in that
I value what I see very much and it is exciting to try
and put into paint what I had as my driving idea.

"It would be impossible for me to paint outdoors
even if I wanted to. There is nothing immobile in our
surroundings...But even if everything were fixed, it
would be enough just for the sun to move in order to
give a different appearance to things. One must paint
quickly because so much is lost in an instant."

I value every instant when I'm creating, so much.
