Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_ BULL CREEK REVISITED

When I find one of my old paintings that I think can improve or that I'm interested in experimenting with, I use the painting as the reference for a new interpretation.  Interpretation is my game!  For me, every subject is an invitation to reinvent what is there.  God made it beautiful.  My job is to use those clues to invent and design a painting of my own.  I'm not interested in trying to render the facts as they exist in nature.  I want to use them as suggestions for shape, value, color and edge arrangements.  Fun!
