    Off to Church.

    "Off to Church" is one of those strange paintings where I had no idea in my head and just let it evolve. Not exactly the way to do things! One should have a plan.
    A mom and her two spinster daughters in tow and just leaving the house. they certainly are colorfully dressed!
    Anyway, here it is for what it's worth.

    Jibes - lovely, full of charm and beautiful color statements.

    Plans are great, but not required. It's perfectly fine to let paintings simply unfold. Sometimes those unfoldings can beat the pants off any plan (and sometimes not). Interestingly, the unplanned can often transcend initial intentions. No rules here - but don't reject out of hand the panting that "creates itself". This painting is a fine example. I certainly like it a lot, planned or not.

    Nice color work here -- and I love the way the mother seems to be looking towards us as if she is aware that they are being watched. Others have said it about your work and I must echo: "Charming." Al

    Great painting.
    I've found that some of my best paintings have been when the final result was nothing close to the idea I
    started with. Sometimes it works, to just go where
    it takes you.
