The Way I Imagine

I Imagine 
Painters, perhaps more than most, need a new start, a new beginning, a new outlook.

Today is that day. 

Today I will begin painting watercolors the way I imagine.

I will take time not only to understand but also to internalize the steps to create paintings the way I imagine.

Remember, the end result of the painting is art, but the rendering of it is craft.

So I will take time to control each step and nurture that craft to paint the way I imagine.

I will imagine the best motif, the best composition, the best underpainting, the best color palette, the best washes, the best values--in short, the best painting imaginable.

After I imagine the best, I will not give up or give in or otherwise tolerate failure unless and until I paint the way I imagine.

And imagine, if I can do it, so can you.

Keep On Painting
