day sixty-eight

i thought i would do a really quick one tonight, but like with most things, i have a hard time stopping if it's not 'just so'... still, i only spent an hour on this one. this painting is of my Papaw at a 4th of July. He was holding some type of sparkler or firework.

also, allow me to share a quote from a book i began tonight:

"Imagination does not breed insanity. Exactly what does breed insanity is reason. Poets do not go mad; but chess-players do. Mathematicians go mad, and cashiers; but creative artists very seldom."
Orthodoxy, GK Chesterton

12x9" watercolor
