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.
