Black-Eyed Susan

© A.K.SIMON - Black-Eyed Susan - oil on linen - $45

There was obviously much more to this set up than I included in this piece. Somedays you show up to paint and you don't really show up to paint - do you know what I mean? I didn't really study the scene and make a plan before I started this one. I was bellyaching about being lethargic because I'm sick of the heat this summer and not interested in tolerating another "scorcher".  Funny thing is by the end of this one I was satisfied with the outcome. There is no doubt what this painting is about - I like simple and direct. So I guess the moral of the story is, "somedays just showing up is all it takes." One of my favorite sayings is, "just show up and shut up." Good advice!
