After much agonizing I have decided to continue on with my own way of painting. I challenge myself every single day with my intuitive painting. I don’t need a challenge that goes against my approach to art.
When I paint a realistic subject I try not to rely on my reference photo to execute a painting. For some reason this challenge of painting the Sierra Buttes pushed me into an area that I avoid and that is being overally critical. It took my husband asking me why was I doing this to myself? He knows that I love to paint the Buttes, but not in the way I was trying.
I suppose I failed, yes! Good! Now I can get back to my own way of painting, the challenges that works for me.

I was very happy with this one. I wished that you can see it in person, the photo doesn’t do it justice. I was planning to post more photos but wordpress is acting up and I am out of patience for the moment.
Thank you for your support, now I’ll carry on.
