Never Knew

Before I started painting, I never knew how painters painted.

Never knew how *I* would paint. Sure didn't have any idea I'd be painting the way I do.

Here's the start to my current patch-in-progress:















Fortuitously, once I got this far on Thursday last week, I had to stop painting so I could pack and then head to Maine to visit my dad on the weekend, leaving this start both unfinished and at home. Putting it on hold felt like the exact right thing to do.

    1. Thanks, Sheila. How I paint still surprises me. THAT I paint still surprises me, for that matter! I am so grateful to have found painting as a way of being.
