Hello. Well yes suddenly my abstract paintings have some symbolism. I have no choice but to go with it. Even though strong voices are telling me that I am making paintings that no one will buy. I guess I have to make those to get to the others and what happens is out of my control anyway. I have to have a sense of humor and let loose with my painting not be afraid of being bad. Take a fucking chance. Get over your ass and don't be afraid of being bad I say it again.
Be Bad! Bad is better than doing the same thing over, For Me. As with all quality self help I must always keep the focus blah blah.......On painting.
I could be making the worse paintings of my life or the best. I guess I am doing it. I'm being bad. I have to believe that they are going to be successful.
This image is a detail of an 86"x86" painting I call "Pacific Coast" I just looked back on my posts to see that I have been pushing this image for a while. Like it's the only painting in my studio. I'm not so eager to post new work as it is changing, not finished. How embarrassing.
