LousePoint Over Under Triptych 2002
Watercolor on Paper, 28X12 inches

So I was accustomed to having the photos reinforce my vision. But the Black Swamp photograph existed as a different vision from the one I was pursuing in the paintings. It has made me question the relationship of photography to painting:

Has my compulsive taking of pictures been necessary to the making of the paintings or do the photos coexist with the canvases?

If I had seen the photograph earlier would it have limited or enhanced the investigation of my first impression?

There does seem to be multi-level relationship. It may be intuitive, but it also seems a necessary part of the process of making art.
