Art does not have rules. This is nice. This is also odd at times. Regardless, I painted straight through today. It's all a song, a story, an energy. Really good painting is much more about the moment than anything else. And, the moment encompasses all.
Recently, someone asked me why I would still be working at something that I had not been able to master in four years. I have thought a lot about this. Oil painting is exciting because it is so allusive. I am frustrated and delightfully enticed at the same time. (Four years? That is no time!)
