This painting was a joy to create. It is painted on a very smooth canvas textured panel and my brush seemed to just glide across it. One of the reasons I paint in oil is its sensuous quality...while mixing, applying the paint, even the smell. Oil doesn't dry quickly or smell like acrylics. I use acrylics occasionally when I'm creating one of my 'From The Zone' paintings because I need the quick drying quality to get the results I want.

This garden was painted intuitively from my imagination. Sometimes this works well and other times it doesn't. This one worked least I think so.

Today's Quotation: "I'd like to write the way I do my paintings, that is, as fantasy takes me, as the moon dictates."
-Paul Gauguin
