The Internet is a wonderful tool. I use it to search for images and for artists. Other artists work gives me ideas and inspiration. One particular artist I’ve found lately is Anita McComas.
All her work verges on the abstract but it’s not. Impressionistic is a poor description. I’ve always admired artists who can bring reality from a few apparently unrelated brush strokes. My work is always too detailed. I try and fail to paint like McComas.
