BEGINNINGS...AGAIN!! by SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

I've been looking inside myself lately...figuring what I wanted to do with some of my "long skinnies" as I call them...no...not another aspen SPECIFIC piece...something else...

On those days I look through all  my photos...I look at color...I look for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that inspires me...until I come up with an idea...

Of COURSE I absolutely LOVE my mountains, my trees, my beautiful landscapes...so that is a beginning for me...BUT WHAT ELSE she says...hmmm...

Well...one of my all time favorite artists is Grant Woods...for his landscapes...have you looked at his landscapes lately??  They are FUN...and colorful...so, he was my secondary inspiration for this play I have begun...

How to combine the subject I love with his flair for color and such...so this is my beginning...You may have to click on this to see the pencil drawing in that big ole white space...but if you don't have time...trust me it's there...I have Mt. Evans up top...well, below the sky...and then Mt. Evans...and then I am going to combine different scenes around me to bring all this together...

WHEW...at least that is the plan...as we know it could always turn into something else...but the PLAN is...thinking of Mr. Woods playfulness and his layering of hills and combining it with my mountains around here...I'm curious as to what will come out...FUN!

HAPPY CREATING!!

I love Grant Woods' landscapes, too -- those broccoli trees always make me smile. Your Mt Evans painting looks very promising. Beautiful colours! Can't wait to see the finished product. :)
