Painting, Passion and Inspiration
This canvas panel has been painted so many ways over the last few years that I made this last try before abandoning the effort and throwing it in the trash.
Next I began just applying paint to some blank canvases with pallet knives. Relaxing and just painting without trying to paint a picture or anything.
The results weren't much better but it's giving me a chance to reflect on the half century I've spent painting and think about whether or not I want to continue.
It feels good to be painting again but the fire and the passion have gone out of it...at least for now.
