Do the work every day. Commit to yourself and your practice. Listen to your gut. Try not to be swayed by the negative voices in your head and around you. Share your process. Find a community by getting involved. Show your work. Show up and show your work, it is easier than ever to put images online. I sold these two beauties last week, because I showed them. That is the only way.
I have not been posting very regularly. Busy with exhibitions, submissions and getting a new website sorted. Really happy to be back in my studio making new work. The more consistent I am with my practice the more ideas I have. Lately, I have been positively brimming and there are many projects and plans on the go. I have to remember that for those times when I feel stuck and flat. It’s cyclical.
Posted this yesterday in support of mental health awareness. Everybody is affected by mental health. Let us lift the stigma. Art heals.
Similar palettes but different execution of forms and material. Working on a few different paintings at once. That is how I roll. I like the variety and contrast. It has not always been that way with my art practice. I had a mentor who insisted we work on one piece at a time until completion. Sometimes I would be working on the same reproduction of an old master for months, In particular I remember working on Albrecht Durer’s self portrait in prismacolour…. I like this better:)
