"As Freely as the Mixing of Paint"
I started this painting before we left for Europe, and couldn't find the right angle to photograph it. Now I've got it. The work is inspired from the place I have lived all my life, and it is coming along nicely.
While I am painting, my mind is in a super creative mode and words that describe my process come to me as freely as the mixing of paint. However, they are only in my head, there and then gone, but they are great! I sound so brilliant to myself, so eloquent and succinct. So, my next step, while I am painting, if possible, is to some how break away from my painting and relay this very keen verbiage to myself by pen or recording, so that I can then relay it to you. And, you know, it's not really brilliant, but it's what I am thinking at the time, which really helps me discover what lies beneath the surface of creation, paint and canvas. I don't know if it is worth breaking the artistic moment so that I can explain what I am thinking while I am doing it. Anyone have any ideas?
