Even though every day is filled with many tasks, I’m consistently spending time in my studio. When I did the Give Me That Dog Project, I picked up the habit of spending time in my studio each day. Just being here every day for a few hours has moved my painting life forward! Yesterday I actually got some paintings up on my newly painted studio walls. Now it looks like I live and work here!
I’ve started a new painting and thought it might be interesting to see a painting in progress. The work contains the good, the possible and the ugly. The progress of a painting can be almost a painful experience…like a hike up a small mountain. Lots of other “stuff” gets in the way and some of the choices I make today may be unacceptable tomorrow. There is a kind of “lostness” to the experience. The key is to hang in there until there is a resolution….everything working together in just the right way. Kind of mystical. Enjoy!
