I’m digging the development of this piece. Literally, it feels like old times. I’d almost forgotten what it felt like to be a painter. There is an amazing feeling of comfort that I get from being “in-process” on a painting that I forget from time to time when I’ve been distracted by life for extended periods. What’s fascinating to me is how much I actually need to paint. The lack thereof leaves me somewhat off-balance – in the same way that missing Tuesday night meditation or taking a week off from running my leave me feeling less centered and less confident. When I pick up the brush and make headway with a painting, it’s a way of validating myself in a way. I just love it.
I am cautious about getting excited about this piece, but I’m thoroughly enjoying where it is right now. Yes, I need to apply that sentiment to just about everything in my life. Instead of “Attachment”, I’m thinking about renaming this blog “Expectation”. Same thing?
On another subject. I am ready to paint big. I’ve put my time in already damnit!!! Ready to unload maximum superchoice chops on the people…end of the year, early 2011?? Hmmm….
Now back to the primary subject for a moment. This is going to be a good piece – call it a gut feeling.
