Tomales Church - Work In Progress

12 x 16 oil on Raymar canvas panel

I want to capture the light in this painting. I am also paying attention to the various colors I see and putting them down even if they don't make sense to me - I fight with "what I know" - (or think I know) vs. what I see. I can't count the times I have heard "Paint what you see, not what you know." Being a logical person, that should be a piece of cake to put into amazes me how difficult it actually is. Must be a
left/right brain thing :O)

I agree with R. At first glance I thought it was done. It is looking fabulous so far. Hope things are better now.

My Mom is doing better but it will take months...I appreciate your thoughtfulness :)
