Julia Cameron, in her book THE ARTIST'S WAY, suggests that we have periods of reading deprivation to become more creative. This, I have not been able to do with any degree of success. Why do we read so much? Why are the opinions and ideas of others so important to us? Why do we need to know how others feel about writing and painting or any other activity?

Do we read to justify, by comparison, our own way of looking at things. Is our own creative life so boring or…

Marie, thank you for the additional thoughts.  I understand and I agree.  I think where I messed up was when I took out the dark leafed tree in the middle and started trying to "fill in" something in that area.  I never noticed the differenct between the 2 pic.   This was the first time I ever worked up a tonal compsition to work from (changing the original photo to a particular value plan).  In my plan that part of the painting was to be dark, so I just added more trees to have all dark in that area.  I did not notice the 2 trees to the left of the rock being dead center in the painting until almost finished.  The sky was widened to be behind the 2 trees to help them not be so prominant.  LOL  I laughed and the cried.......How in the world did I manage to get 2 trees dead center!  he he  /// I got another comment on another site that he wished I had more dark.  I am just a little afraid to try, but am willing if  you have any ideas as to where it should be placed.  Right next to the big rock?  And even more in the deep forest in spots?  Any ideas?  Ro

Thanks for the comment on the Aspen Grove trees painting.  Which area do you feel I should have had less trees in?  Can you be specific as to which ones you would take out if it were your painting?  I would like to explore this thought with you for future paintings.  Thanks so much for your thoughts.  Ro

Marie, there is just one small problem. Every year around November 1, the turkey just goes poof! I think he takes a vacation to some distant land where they don't eat turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Smart little sucker! he he // Thank you so much for the comment on my gallery. I appreciate you looking. Ro

Thank you so much Marie, I tend to paint things that Ihave never painted before and usually is a lot of stress. I just buckle down and make myself do it! I need much more experience. I painted and taught 30+ years ago, then a long laps. I started painting again about 1.5 years ago. It was hard trying to remember what to do with all these paints and brushes! LOL Ro

They are fantasy artists who have done much work in both sci-fi and fantasy illustration (book covers). Frank Frazetta died in May, he did most of the work for Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan, Conan the Barbarian and John Carter), Luis Royo and Julie Bell do similar work. I love their stuff for both movement, composition, action and color.

Mercy! You are the bravest of the brave! I have done very little in the way of portraits. Beau with his master in the tub was my first and it was such a challenge. Give me a feline or canine any day! Sweet thoughts and praise to you in your continued efforts! D

Does it work for me? No. I paint mostly for fun. I have health problems that keep me from working my art career. (except on the internet and the canvas) I retired 4 yrs ago and and started painting again 2 yrs ago. I've sold one painting, and am working on a commissioned portrait right now. I started doing smaller paintings just so I could get more paintings done because I see so many things I want to paint.
I'm on "The Complete Artist" because Richard Robinson is one of my painting Idols. He is the coolist and me and my art club absolutely fell in love with his art and his philasophical nature (can't spell). I bought a domain name 6 months ago and now I want to get to host it for me. I'm trying to "Find myself" so to say. I love doing portraits and those Big boats you saw of mind. I like painting everything but I'm trying to scale it down and make it more marketable. Meanwhile, I'm having fun and it is very personally rewarding to do my paintings and a nice blog if I do say so myself.
Thank you Marie, Please stay in touch. And tell me a little about yourself or maybe I should go back to your web site and I will. Bye
