Being There

Once upon a time I felt brave to take a beginning drawing class from a working artist. She was totally into calderas. All over her studio were canvasses, finished and not, of all sizes of calderas, realistic to abstract. They were all awesome and amazing! Such passion! I wondered if I ever would be passionate about something like she was of painting volcanic calderas. 

I painted this landscape for our upcoming July calendar. When I was younger, July was all about backpacking in the Sierra Nevadas, thus the mountain scene. I have no idea what I’m doing when I paint. It just happens. 

Today’s link up is with Art for Fun Friday. Come along and visit with me.

  3. Dear Susie,
    you have painted a great, lively landscape! It's always good not to think while painting - those will be the best pictures. Thanks, I learned a new word from you - "calderas"...
    All the best from Austria and have a nice weekend,

  6. But you paint. I tried it once. It was awful. I could never do something as lovely as what you've done.

  7. I love all the colors and layers you painted. You created an exciting and beautiful scene. I like how you picked your summer hiking as a theme. Have a great weekend! hugs-Erika

  8. What I like with this landscape is that it has a "little bit of everything", COOL!
