First, remember I was going to New Orleans this week? Well, we moved it to next week. So MONDAY (Aug 10-12) I will be in NOLA.
Second, I usually think of meaningful things to write on here when I am driving or in bed trying to sleep. Then when I get online, I draw a blank. Such is life and I'm sorry these posts aren't more insightful.
My year dedicated to growth has finally begun to show in my work. Maybe more than a physical change in my palette or application, is a growth in my attitude. And maybe that is the most important thing. I am sort of over trying to please others. Part of me feels my audience has maybe drifted away to look over the shoulders of other artists, and that is ok. Its making me feel more free to experiment and change my style. I paint daily with abandon. When I get tired, I stop. I start at all hours of the day. I paint when an idea strikes me. I work on something until I'm bored, have said what I wanted to say or am tired and then I walk away and start something new the next day. I suppose I will go back over these works before my show in Sept. but I hope I don't do much... the last thing I want to do is whittle the life away.
Above are some close up images of an interior with a dog. I should paint more dogs.
