Island Time

Island Time
Oil on Wood
My biggest fan insisted I post paintings again, so here goes. I am still reliving my time in the Cove. Calm and cool, a step away from the rest of the World.
Someone posed the question, "How do you know when a painting is finished?" My answer is, "I try to stop before I over-think it." Which is why I like to work small and fast. But the real answer is that nothing is ever finished. I've been painting over old paintings all month. This quote hangs on my wall, "Don't ever assume you've finished anything." Painting, like all art, and Life, for that matter, is a process. Non-linear. Messy. Mysterious. And never-ending.
