Purple into Green

This weekend, a number of people has independently complimented me "on my painting," upon seeing some of my photographs in print.

I took it as a a positive sign, of course.

That impressionistic effect is best achieved with macro photography, like this image.

Of course, I had to mentally block the frustrating fact that I haven't had the chance to paint in quite some time, even though I was once quite skilled.

And I will be again.
