What sparks the creative urge, what happens when I start to paint, what is needed for the creative process. Lessons I have learned

This is my entry into the Mansfield Art Center's May Show. It is an unusual show as it has a lot of creative and sometimes wierd art objects. I have been wanting to paint this picture for years but never felt I had the skills until now. If you enlarge the painting you will see some comments that are pertinent to the painting. I will put the progress on this blog in the next few days.
I also entered the Okame Cherry Tree painting that was posted prior to this post.It was a Plein Air painting done at Kingwood Center this Spring. I entered that one because it is the May Show and it is impressionistic. We will see...will know by next Sunday if they made it. I have painted 2 more paintings while completing these but will have to photo and upload. Wish me luck!
It was accepted! No award but I did get in the show.
