Study of Running Water2

Another study of running water, working from an enlarged photo, the same one used for the last study. I can get downright obsessive about copying a photo, but will that get me where I want to go? Where do I want to go? How am I going to find out where I want to go? Fumble blindly forward? Research the paths of others? And which others?

On that subject, here's a tongue-in-cheek essay by Ken Rockwell, "The Seven Levels of Artists", and more serious ruminations by Best of all, here's a great essay written by David Byrne, published in WIRED magazine, examining the same question but from the view of a musician, "David Byrne's Survival Strategies for Emerging Artists."
