Some paintings happen easily some fraught with anxiety. This one brought up more than the average amount of doubt. Luckily it doesn't seem like those feelings come through.
So much of my explorations feel un-chartered. Although I look to the past and present of Art, in the studio I'm alone, as it should be.
I've made paintings that felt New only to discover that they were a style strongly associated with a famous artist. So you put those paintings aside and move on. In the moment it's sad because you want to show something that feels new. I've learned that it is always best to push the pause button before clicking the send button...the hard way.
