The joy of painting, thoughts on painting and observation

Image
We consider ourself so fortunate to live in beautiful San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato! The weather is spectacular, sunny, most of the time, not too hot not too cold most of the time. The locals are friendly. All is easy and the days are smooth and peaceful. I paint in the morning as early as 8 AM and keep going until 2 PM or so. The painting just flows and I have so, so many ideas and projects I hope I'll have energy to produce all of them. I love taking the bus, taxies or just walk around. I believe one of an artist most important skills is OBSERVATION. It comes, I think from genuine interest in shapes, color, shadows, moods, and personality of a place. Even if I don't sketch I assimilate my environment. February flower at Cristi Fer Art Studio in San Miguel de Allende  As a kid growing us in Bucharest, I remember being interested in all this. After a shopping trip or a day in the park I will return home and paint what I have observed. I loved to watch the shapes
