define the search
If we, as artists, do not take chances nothing we do will ever be different or truly from the heart. We will continue to make pretty pictures. So one question is, why?
Experimentation has always been a big part of my work, but now as I sit back in my studio I see paintings that "try too hard." I, unknowingly have pushed myself into a corner of representation. Direction is foggy. So, as I crawl out I offer a thought.
Have you ever just sat down and looked at a big body of your work and wondered, "what am I doing?" Define the search.
