On Quitting Painting
In the last ten days I have decided to quit painting at least four times. The paint isn't flowing, the drawings aren't working, color relationships are off, values are in the middle range....it all just seems clunky.
Most painters I talk to have periods like this one. After years of these attacks of 'quitting for good' I've come to realize, however rotten I feel, that it's just part of the process. Maybe tomorrow it will all be different and the brush will be a friend....maybe it won't.
Stay tuned. I feel a breakthrough coming on....
(This demo painting is from some months ago....just to put something on the blog.)
