Painted World

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

I don't know about you, but I am totally smitten with Danna Ray's incredible work! This brilliant artist often chooses to paint directly on location just so she can explore sensory perceptions of time and movement in changing landscapes.

And speaking of painting outdoors, she recently said something that really stayed with me...

'Painting outdoors was one of many things I swore off when I was younger. It always sounded good until I got overwhelmed by gnats, mosquitoes, fire ants, oppressive heat, bits of leaves blowing into the paint. Surely adulthood has something to do with the ability to tolerate discomfort for a chance at joy or transformation.'

We all adapt when we really want something, don't we?

P.S: Outings.
P.P.S: Museum of selfies.
