Is there anything more exhilarating to a painter than completing a painting?
I don’t think so.
It can be the culmination of years, months, weeks, or days, depending on the artist’s passion and/or mental state. It can also be the end of just a few hours work if you’re particularly driven.
It’s your vision come to fruition, not to mention your blood, sweat, and (sometimes) tears.
But, oh my, what a feeling, as they say.
It’s the unburdening of the desire and drive you put yourself under to produce good—no make that great—work.
It’s the relief of creative pressure.
It’s the crest of a wave, and the end of a rainbow.
It’s the painter’s Mt. Everest.
It’s New Year’s in Times Square, Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and Bastille Day in Paris.
So, in Today’s Image I present my latest watercolor, Venice Beach, Morning.
Until next blog…
