I didn't paint today, but I sorted through some of my old work. About 85% of my old paintings need to be discarded! The painting above, however, won't meet that fate...it is one of my favorite early paintings. I painted it out of my cigar box pochade while sitting on my bed. There's my orange nylon jacket and my red sweater.
Say, did you know author Henry Miller was a watercolorist? I like the paintings in this video (below). Looks to me like he thoroughly enjoyed painting...... his work was colorful and playful.
"Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself".----Henry Miller
