Process of a Painting

I thought it would be interesting to share my painting process with my audience; how I navigate thoughts, intuition, impulses and the knowledge and principles of a painting practice. I like to work in a series, so spending a little time on each piece helps to diffuse anxiety when I reach a point of not knowing. It makes sense and something I have learned from many artists who use this practice. It helps to stay fresh with each visit of the painting process and for the image to emerge. However, I also listen to my intuition and work can change drastically - that’s where I then have to listen to the painting….there is a beautiful balance that can happen. I also want the painting to look effortless, though it’s in the process of making, erasing, adding, repeat, repeat again that the magic happens. I love it!
