Sorry I haven’t been posting as much lately, I seem to be going through one of my periodic antisocial phases when I hide away from the world. I liken these phases to being in a cocoon because my art focus triples and usually I come out of it with something I didn’t have before- a belief, a technique, new ideas, new ways of looking.. It isn’t something I can force, if I try I lose whatever it was I was trying to gain- like a soap bubble.
I think that over the past couple of months I have been trying to force it. to push through with my usual bullheaded workaholic tendencies. I have been pushing out paintings before their time has come in response to some inane clock ticking away in my head. I think that is why my latest pieces have been very mediocre – I need to work on their timetable, not mine.
