This painting started out as something much different, brushed on. It didn’t last. I scraped and brushed more opaque paint to cover up some of the original. Even then I intended something different than what came out in the end. Given more time, it would have changed yet again!

Passion and practice are keys to success in art and most (all?) other pursuits. Today’s quote is from another interviewee in the Iowa women artists’ project, Des Moines artist Concetta Morales.
