This morning I found a photo I took a couple of years ago of an orchid in a southwestern facing window. I focused on the orchid; this blew out the details behind. I rather liked the effect. This is my morning painting.
Today I took off my splints – it’s like getting out of jail, I swear – to enjoy the freedom of using some pen and ink. Now the splints are back on, but there is a sense of satisfaction in doing some artwork, no matter how simple. Pen and color, with a focus on simple color.
