DSC_1231 (3) Distant Oak smaller

I seem to be preprogrammed to make certain kinds of compositions.  I particularly like ones that radiate in different directions like the spokes of a wheel.  It’s a feature of my own mind’s topography that I wouldn’t know except for seeing it afterwards in art.  It’s one of the reasons for painting — to paint not only the outer landscape, but the inner one too.


The comparison is more apparent when Distant Oak is turned upside down.

What do you learn about yourself by the things you do?  What does your own mind’s architecture look like?  And what is your brain trying to tell you?!

Sometimes you have to listen to yourself!
