painting in my mind

there is a part of painting that always feels out of reach

I think it’s my mind that sometimes gets attached to how I feel

something should look.

there is nothing wrong with that

aiming for a particular look or feel in a painting is okay but

when it comes at the expense of true expression it can feel limited.

TBH I love forms in my work but I would like to allow myself to play and be looser

with my approach.

I feel like there is something lovely in that bridge between abstraction and realism

that I want to dance with.

I don’t know it is and I don’t even know what I mean

but with practice I am sure I will come to feel the ground better.

letting go is a practice. touching the ground a prayer.
