Who was it who said that there is "pain" in the word "painting"? So true! The last three PAINtings that I have done (not pictured and never will be) are in the reject pile. My reject pile gets higher and higher! Don't you dislike investing time and effort in something that goes dreadfully wrong? Yeah. Me too. I am happy enough with the concept for this painting. A new vantage point always makes me feel better. (I know my friend Lora Fisher would give this painting the thumbs down... because it features a flying bird. We all have our biases...so Shhh. Don't tell her).
Have you wondered why you are creating? Have you ever thought about quitting (or not even starting)? Theories on this subject will be advanced (and answers provided) Wednesday, Sept 9, 6:30-7:30 2412 NW Raleigh St, Portland, OR 97210
