Being Me- 4x4 inches, acrylic on gesso board
Pouring over art books filled with gorgeous paintings by masters both dead and living, I often find myself sighing. A long, drawn out sigh that echoes the thoughts in my head- oh to paint like that! I once lamented to a friend that I wished I could have just a tiny bit of the talent Sargent possessed. "You were never meant to be another Sargent" she said "You were meant to be you and do it like no one else." Though I still strive to improve myself with each painting, and will never give up studying the masters, I love painting the song that only my brush knows how to sing. I have embraced "Being Me."
