As a learner and lover of almost everything visual, I quickly bore of painting the same subject over and over again. (It can leave me feeling like I’m living the Bill Murray movie Groundhog Day). That’s why I enjoy dynamically jumping from one subject or medium to another.
With each medium, I experience a unique feeling or mood within the technical execution.
Once I’m totally immersed with the medium and feel one with the tool, I find the painting almost paints itself.
There is always a clear idea in my brain, however. Often the brain takes over and I’m just along for the ride.
