When I first began painting the urge to rush through and look for a finish in a piece was my nemesis. After so many years of living in the paints , I still often find myself wishing I would hurry up and find solutions to problems in paintings. Maybe it is age, maybe a little wisdom, maybe just a befuddled brain, but I seem to stop, sit, and think so much more now. I feel as if I connect with my work on a totally different level now. I paint not to finish, but to learn and find not just solutions, but multifaceted solutions that serve more than just the aesthetic of the painting. I am not sure if the problems have become greater or the solutions more complicated, but somehow the immersion into the work is refreshing and almost baptismal ,rather than drowning me. Everyday in art opens and ends with new challenges…what a great life!
