Out of longing to escape the dark, flat composition for the first of these last three posts...I broke out with this one....I really, really like it!
This one came, it seemed, out of no where.  On second thought the color palette suggests that on my mind is my son, Eric; in Arizona.  He will earn a master's degree, and I'll be visiting there in June to celebrate with him and the family.

Suddenly makes sense.  He tells me that the winding pathway/waterway prevails in all of my compositions.  He's correct.  I am trying to learn to carry the viewers eye through the picture.  I obviously lack the subtlety of the masters.  It's all about brush time...

This project is one I have been struggling with over these past few months.......I am still not happy.  My son says I should post especially for this reason.  I can't seem to givr it any light and depth.  Help!?
