First you need to know how to think. I personally never knew about thinking, just reacting to what was in my world.   Reacting is a marsh filled with quick sand, thinking is a mountain with an ocean view.   I am just now beginning to think at the young age of 61, it’s hard as my mind has been on auto pilot for such a long time.

Mountain Stream

This piece is a cut out of paper glued down and painted with oil. The size is 10×10 paper. Almost everyone has a memory of a mountain stream, fishing, bathing, drinking, water falls.
