Everyone has seen folk art.
I always thought gosh, that would be so easy to do.
Just dab a little paint here and there
Make it resemble something
Easy peasy, right?
It is hard, tedious, time consuming and lip biting work.
It takes for EVER
I tried it today...
and I finally finished.
It's a typical rolling hills scene,
You've seen them everywhere
but I didn't realize
I would have to paint and repaint,
make each little tree, for instance, threefold PLUS its cast shadow.
The light side and the dark side enhanced around the middle ground.
For EVER I say!
But....the experience was worth it.
It will be awhile before I paint another whimsical folk art scene.
I commend those artists who paint and paint and paint folk art.
They have sooooo much patience.
Patience was never my virtue.
