i have quite a few relatives who can paint and/or draw. it’s in my head, but it won’t translate to my hand with a brush or pencil. it does, however, translate to my hand in drawing graphics. sigh…

Two of the most frustrated trades are dentists and photographers. Dentists because they want to be doctors, and photographers because they want to be painters.

    I love that shot. It reminds me of a photo pf Churchill. Except he was painting a landscape.
    I have a painting that my sister did when she was about 9. It floors me how good it is. I, on the other hand, can’t draw a stick person.

    This painter has come well-prepared with the umbrella providing shade and protection. I love the sneak peek at what he’s painting. Great candid capture!

    besides being a photographer, I am a painter. Last year, I did the family room in a periwinkle blue, with an artic snow ceiling. Some feel the north facing wall surpasses many of my photographs in beauty/

    I love this image, Sherri!
    Art doesn’t have to be a painting or drawing…. (as Harry above describes… 🙂 ) There is nothing wrong with the kind of art you create… I’m sure y our relatives would tell you that you are a wonderful artist!

    I really like the muted tones of this image, Sherri. I have always loved watercolor painting and knew if I ever tried something besides oil painting (which I did in high school), it would be that. I never did it throughout the years but now as a photographer, I use a watercolor app to manipulate some of my images for Watercolor Sunday on Facebook. It’s ended up being the best of both worlds for me. HA!

    Magnifique composition. On peut je pense être photographe et peintre. Et si ce n’est pas le cas,
    On ne peut pas être doué pour tout non plus ! ….

    Picasso’s words are so true. WHat I enjoy most about ohotograpohy is editing! I like how you composed this image.

    Curious that the painter is looking inwards – just like mine a few days ago!

    I would be interested to see what she is painting! A great image! That quote by Picasso has a lot of truth to it.

    you and Picasso agree on that point I see. And you certainly have your talents too. Drawing graphics is a talent to be proud of.
