White World

Moving on with this current work in progress and this newly begun small little painting, I hope for the colour to return soon in this white snowy February we are having right now..



This is something I am working on at present.. I find it hard to ‘stop painting’ sometimes..it’s like my conscience is whispering to stop but I can’t. Physically, I feel compelled to work some of my paintings up and up until they are almost smothered.. that is where I ‘go’ when I surround myself with my subject..

Questions, Questions..

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..

..in progress
