Stop being so literal!

Fall is my favorite season! Perfect days to paint outdoors. The beauty of God’s creation always amazes me! I'm challenging myself to be more abstract in my art lately. I have to disconnect myself of the reality, and just go with what I feel. It’s a matter of accepting of not being so literal. Instead, I need to focus on the elegance of light and form in my composition. See below the process of my painting that I did at Sycamore Shoals, Elizabethton, TN.

Have a wonderful day and happy painting!
With Love,
