The great circle

Posted on Jul 24, 2019 in General

It’s been slightly over a year since I posted about what I anticipated would be a big shift in my work, and today I’ve posted some of the paintings from the past year. A little scary, making such a big change? Yes, but scarier still was the prospect of becoming stale and simply executing new versions of what I had done before. No growth or change = stagnation. It’s been very exciting (except for the day I discovered that all the gessoed panels I had prepared had been done incorrectly and had cracked irreparably) and it is a joy to NOT know what to expect. It’s another chapter in four decades of painting and a revitalization of my energy. At this moment I am rather grateful that the absence of art-related economic and career pressures have left me free to play without anxiety over the consequences.
