When I first began this piece, I didn't have any clue what I was doing. When I finished this piece, I didn't have any clue what I did. I haven't done many landscapes, and the ones I have done, kinda make ya want to stay indoors. This is for Camille Olsen's Moleskin...her theme being "PEACE". Angela had begun the journal's trek with the adorable beagle that exuded such an element of peacefulness that we should find a couple of dogs like that and send em to the leaders of Iran and North Korea. Well, anyway, what to paint for Peace? I started to open a can of peas, put em the blender and paint them...then call it "Envision Whirled Peas", but thankfully, I nixed that. Finally, I decided on a medley of stuff...a peaceful scene, a peace lily, a peace symbol, a peace rose, and a dove. Mixed em all together and slapped it on the page. I think it works if no one mistakes the fall foliage for a forest fire.
I hope Camille likes it. She's a sweet, little Texas girl who would probably like it even if it stunk like week-old sauerkraut. I'm now going to stand out by the mailbox and await the next "Mission Improbable"
