I like to paint from my imagination...Will I live long enough to paint everything I want to paint? Probably not; so I just keep painting from my imagination and see what develops there. Not to say I haven't painted nature. It is a challenge like anything else and sometimes the work doesn't turn out too badly...it is all an inspiration... This is my last Sunday at the co-op before my leave of absence. Today I work 10-12 and work with the artist who is taking my place, a pastel painter named Barbara. She seems capable and enthusiastic about the co-op. She will open the store on Sunday mornings and someone will take her place at noon.
