Joyce Findlay's Blog (5)


It has been a long time since I posted here, but I have not quit painting in the meantime.  I hope I have improved somewhat over the years.  I feel as if I have moved in the right direction.  My goal was always to be a little looser.  I want it to be an impression of "something" but also need the subject to be identifiable.
