When I feel I am nearing the conclusion of a painting, I gather a lot of mixed thoughts and feelings about how it should finish.. it’s the worst and best feeling..
I am limboed with the contemplation of a work in progress..there is a fine line between absolute euphoria and complete failure..
you need a good sense of humour at times..

Taken on my phone for now, this painting is finished as of right now. After talking to a visitor to my studio today about my work, on how it comes together and where it comes from, made me think a lot more about my art and the direction it’s going. This piece I thought was finished a week ago, until this afternoon. But now it is there I think. I am ecstatic. Come see it at my exhibition in February, opening March 3rd, Signal Arts Centre, Bray 🙂
Here’s a little piece of my studio floor. Some things brought inside.

I’m recalling a haze of how I was thinking..
