I remember reading Thomas Wolf's classic as a teenager and knowing there will be a lot of things that will go right over my head? It was what led me, later in life, to read to Tom Wolf (during the drug years).
I make it a rule never to use others peoples photos. Dawn, (girl in picture)
is a friend and painter (artist, not houses) who lives in Kitty Hawk. I saw this picture of her and her horse "Azúcar"( Spanish for Sugar). I loved the light in the photo and asked her if I could paint from it. Here are the results.
