The acronym K.I.S.S. echos in my brain quite often. I heard a motivational speaker talk about the idea around 15 years ago. The letters stand for Keep It Simple Silly. Ever since, when a situation becomes too complex (without the need to be complex) I come back to this idea and it helps me sort through the "junk" to get to the solution.
This painting was created on location in about 20 minutes about 3 years ago. I was leading a fellowship group for artists at my church (West Shore Evangelical Free) and the session was to be relaxing and social. Although it is not a masterpiece, I really like it. Today it will help me stay focused while I work on a 4 day agenda for the Gettysburg 2012 Artist Colony and prepare for the grand opening of my own gallery.
