“Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it.”
– William C. Durant
Cottage Inn at Bethville – 6″ x 12″ Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas
The sun came out for a few minutes this morning, so I was able to
photograph my newest paintings. I had so much fun doing these. There
are many layers of paint and glaze, but the fun came in when I got to
add the shadows and highlights. That’s when they really came to life. I
can’t wait to start the next three. They’ll be 12″ x 24″.
About William C. Durant
William C. Durant, founder of General Motors, consolidated much of
the fledgling American auto industry under one roof. He was born in 1861
in Boston and grew up in Flint, Michigan. His innovative business model
was to buy out vendors and acquire competitors. Forced to resign from
GM due to this management style, he founded a new company with his
race-car driver, Louis Chevrolet. He later regained control of GM but
lost everything in the Great Depression. He died in 1947.
