Impressions of Nature

Pierre Bonnard said “The important thing is to remember what most impressed you and to put it on canvas as fast as possible. Art will never be able to exist without nature”

I was walking around Laguna Beach on Cliff Drive. I turned around and boom there is the ocean. I wish I could say I immediately painted the scene.

The inspiration came quickly but I took notes and some photos then when I’m home I try to recapture the feelings and “what impressed” me that day. Trying to express the intangible qualities of nature is mind-boggling but I’ll press on. It's fun!
