Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_BREAKING ROUTINE

A refreshing, rushing mountain creek that parallels the road into Ouray.  Just returned from two weeks of painting in the San Juan mountains of southern Colorado.  Very stimulating!  Getting away, with time to focus on my painting usually seems to open my eyes.  Not only seeing unfamiliar landscape, but the heightened enjoyment of a new environment seems to release endorphins and good things happen. Putting myself outside of my usual routine provides new input and an increased sense of experimentation.  Of course, traveling isn't the only way to break-up encroaching habits, but for me, it's one of the most pleasant.
