Smart is not Always Good
I am beginning a pair of 20" x 20" canvases that I have in mind for a show in March/April. The colors are beguiling, even for me. I tried to talk myself out of going ahead with this project, because it may be that there won't buyer, that the colors are not as popular or relative to current decor practices. But I have to paint them! I must paint them simply because it is in me to do so, and these colors were conjured up from the deepest level of my inner artist child, a place that cannot be ignored for long. Otherwise I am only painting safely, and that's smart, but not always good.
