the simple things

at saic i completed something like 30 paintings in 2 weeks.....it was insane. during my lunches i would also paint. that day i brought my dress and hung it up and decided to paint it in oil life size....ok maybe a little larger. i loved the feeling it gave, it took on its own personality. as i was painting i got very frustrated and the professor came around and asked me if i was trying to paint a photograph....i said "no but the pattern is overwhelming", he told me to put the dress away and paint how i felt about the dress.....i did and it changed my life. it is one of the best art lessons i have ever learned. collection of rachel freeman
