Winter Colorsdigital painting / art prints – Dan Beck 2006

This is my first painting in quite some time – a few weeks anyway. It is fascinating how the urge to create works.

On the one hand, one feels a kind of craving than is difficult to describe – but then for lack of practice – it feels enormous just to get started.

Deciding what to paint or what size – all these things seem big. Being creative like most things is about striking a balance – being relaxed enough to not care about mistakes – but still be able to create with the importance a piece deserves.

To create this digital painting, I drew from things I have been seeing over the last few weeks.  Today, it is not the piece I thought it was yesterday – but it has captured the blues and browns of winter in the Salinas Valley.
