I had a fun time working on this painting, Decadent Forest, last week. I painted over an older painting and I feel that helped me achieve the delicate balance between intention and discovery. Sometimes I plow right through with my intentions and forget to play and be involved with the process. I have also just played and felt the painting had no structure or intention. It's a tricky balance.
It also felt really good to make some sales this weekend. The prices weren't high but nothing makes an artist feel better than a sale. Thank you to those purchasers, I appreciate you. And those sales also help the Harn Museum of Art and Melrose Bay Art Gallery, places that we love.
