Although I've been a photographer for over 30 years, it's not the only artistic medium I dabble in. Recently I've begun painting gourds, which led to making lanterns, Halloween decorations, and Christmas ornaments. On several of my gourds, I've painted "real" scenes, working from photos that I took years ago, particularly birds, alpacas, and lighthouses. I've always enjoyed drawing, and even took oil painting lessons as a kid; but nothing ever came of it until now. Right place, right time.

Does one form of art necessarily lead to another? I don't think so. But for me, the photographer's eye can aid the painter's brush. Before I shoot a photo, I see the detail within the camera's frame; and when I paint, I notice the detail within the photo and transfer it to my "canvas". One thing I must continue to tell myself: Draw what you see, not what you know. Have faith that the result will be good.
