The above image is a modified version of the painting. The main changes were done in the foreground. I also did some landscaping with my brush.

Our studio is near farm fields and the harbor. I view the workers and remember striking images and make notes. Here are workers with lunches in hand. They are in a strawberry field that has been covered with plastic, ready for planting.

The Clown circus came to Ventura. Here is a study of them setting it up. The lower tarps have not been hung on the sides at this point. It was a cool morning and this is a view from the Fair Grounds Parking Lot looking towards the mountains.
One may ask; how did he paint this helecopter flying? Did he use a photograph. No, I used my imagination. Your brain is the most powerful computer in the universe. This helecopter was sitting on the other side of the runway, covered with a tarp. I created an image I wanted to view.
Take a chance with your subjects. Don't be a slave to what is in front of you!
