embracing the work I can
Toro Inspired – digital art painting – Dan Beck 2009
The artwork is inspired by Mount Toro – a part of the Santa Lucia Mountains – still Salinas. There is a particular area I am thinking of in doing this painting, but it is not so particularly literal – what else is new.
Actually – where I find myself today is working on a major website redo – but being more overwhelmed by the prospect than being able to get on with the doing. There is no substitute for just doing – but it is a daunting task to simplify that which has gotten too big to manage.
Since I am painting instead of website building – and blogging instead – the piece undoubtedly reflects this state. If I could take the same approach as I do with art – I will get it done – but I am less inspired by website design than by the beauty that surrounds me – so I do art and hope that the next days will find it easier to get more done in the process.
On the bright side, I have been wanting to paint this area for quite some time – with or without cows – wasn’t sure – but today it felt like it needed a few cows – a digital challenge for a mouse freehander like myself.
