but definitely not finished. This little painting was started last week at Sandra's workshop. I thought I would have time to finish it this week but no. The week went by so darn fast! I am not quite sure where it went. At any rate I am not willing to give up on this piece even though I don't love it. There are times when making art that you have to push past the ugly. There are also times you have to cut your losses and move on. Deciding which is the right thing to do is the work of the artist.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
