Like the blush of fower petals floating in a bowl of refreshing water,
this impressionist tableau appears a bit japanese.

What can I say other than I love these studio pieces. Talk about finding interest in the immediate world around us. This is what I see before reaching for my glasses.

jerryW: your (too generous) poetic words inspire haiku...

A very sensitive point for someone who has just started wearing glasses to paint.

dornberg: You always make me feel as if I know what I’m doing.

that's what I meant to write, I don't know how point form came over me except I'm at a hasty space here (a software lab)

I haven't been wearing glasses long either. I found they turn out to be pretty great as a tool. When life drawing, I wear them down my nose a bit, I look completely rediculous but I get a bifocal effect. The naked eye helps me see the big shapes of shadow, color and light (used to squint for that) then I can look through the glasses for the detail. My desire to work more loosely came along with my vision deteriorating. I wonder if they are related?! Any thoughts Chuck? Hope that's not too sensitive a nerve.

your recipe...my haiku pan.

I love painting the artists’ studio, genre dynamics

“Too sensitive” this should be the worst that happens to us as we age. I suspect working “loosely” has more to do with a maturing style than deteriorating vision.
