Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: Anasazi Trail

“I ask myself why I want to paint a particular scene, what excites me about it, and why I want to design it a certain way. Having clarity in this initial phase is super important to me. If I don’t know what I’m trying to say, I won’t know where it’s going, and it’ll be difficult to tell when it’s done. The clearer I am with my vision of the painting from the onset — just what it is I want to communicate — the better the painting comes out.”
— Jim Wodark, “Design Makes the Difference”
