Paul Gardner’s bit of wisdom

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 @
