My favorite thing about painting is the process. I love the feeling. The mind space that is required to really be into a painting. The process is somehow difficult and relaxing, challenging and rewarding, it boosts my confidence and humbles me all at the same time. There is no other feeling like creating a beautiful painting. It's satisfying to experience a range of emotions in a just a couple of hours by moving paint around. Sometimes I wipe all the paint off after a day or so.
12/8/18 Lately, I have been thinking a lot about perfection. Sometimes I find myself paralyzed due to imperfection. I may rerun a loop in my head of an imperfect encounter. Or I might toss out a painting because I can see something in the piece that makes me nuts...a glaring imperfection. This desire for perfection has been in my mind for many, many years. Sometimes I can push it away but it always finds a way to haunt me. I like his imperfections.
I get my inspiration from everyday objects and the people closest to me.
