In a previous entry I expressed that I was deliberating over paintings and reworking them all in my head. I have to stop that because I need to keep producing and progressing instead of over-thinking and obsessing. My obsessiveness will have to transform some other part of my life – like maybe my house will become cleaner…? Another artist with a similar point of view seems to have to terms with this craziness – “A painting is never finished – it simply stops in interesting places.” – (Paul Gardner) I will adopt this concept to maintain a new painting on my easel and imagery flowing freely from my brushes, without looking back. Well, maybe a little.
Paul Gardner is a Scottish artist now working out of southern California. His work is amazing and beautiful – I wouldn’t change a thing…but it isn’t mine 🙂 Check out his work @ artlanegallery.com.
