Carmel Beach - Grey Day Beauty

Paint Out!

A year ago I got some email about "Why didn't you tell you were in the area?" in order to avoid this and to feel OK I wrote an email to my list about a Paint Out moment here in Carmel. The 2 loveliest people showed! Anita and Bruce. Great people, kind and talented.

I want you to know what I wrote earlier to them. It's about how so many times you KNOW you can paint but it doesn't come out. Sounds familiar? I was there TOO! In 2007 I felt the shift. (From little control over the end-result to having this control took 7 years in outdoor painting.)

What does control mean: You see something AND you Can paint it Like you want it to be Painted. For you, it might be soon or already here?!

-->All I know is: EVERYONE can get there. You'll just need those years invested in practice of the EYE and be continuously practicing the PAINT. Don't give in, don't give up. Keep on going. After you'll know what Happy Painting is all about. TRUE!


This one here took me 6.5 hours. CRAZY! Yes, they still won't come easy. (And you will always have the wipeouts) but persistence makes a Happy Painter!
