daily painting: 365 day art project
I could title all my paintings Modest From a Distance. Until you get up close to them, you can not possibly see or touch all the layers and texture. Photos are great, but I’m not talking about seeing a photo of a painting. I’m talking about holding it in your hands, running your fingers across the surface, and experiencing it in person. It’s the only way to really see a painting, especially one painted impasto with palette knives. My camera simply isn’t capable of producing a photo that does any painting justice.
