A Mysterious Excursion
Here we have it... a little weekend getaway to the mysterious world of paint sloshed on canvas.
What am I trying to paint? Depth... Mystery... Nature. Primeval places that are overlooked by the workaday world.
Why do I paint the same scenes over and over? It's interesting how one painting begets the next. Before long the artist has developed their own lexicon of imagery. I've got lots of things nagging to get painted. All in good time...
Does it matter what an artist paints? Sometimes it doesn't seem to matter at all. Anything is the perfect subject matter, but some are more perfect than others.
Anyhow, now I've started into my new shipment of BIG canvases... so maybe I'll make some headway to wherever it is I'm going... despite my contentious relationship with those new blank canvases.
