Painting is like…deciding to go on an extended driving trip..in a pretty cool travel trailer.
You spend time figuring out where you’d like to end up..what you’d like to see and do along the way.
This all takes awhile because as you see where the route takes you..you keep changing your mind as to what you’d like to experience and explore.
You ready the vehicle,pack what you think you will need..and start to head out.
Just before you leave the driveway, a friend asks can he get a ride part way?…ahhh ok.
Trip just got more complicated. Now you have to be social. You adjust your thinking and settle in.
Colors are nice, the road is smooth, signs are helpful. Many side trips and stoping to fix the van( you forgot to pack tools) occur..but you start to forget the destination .. instead enjoying the ride. It never really mattered where you were going anyway. Making art ..for me at least is like that.
