The Riot of Flowers is Incessant” baselayer on canvas 30x40”
After life of pi
Don’t push the river.
After throwing the book at the latest lion piece, I found myself completely spent. Did I finally out-paint myself? The following days I was idly mixing paint around but it wasn’t making it to the next canvas. What’s wrong? Am I done for? Is the spark finally out? Where did that bottle of lightning go??!!
Confused by this, I asked a very dear friend who is an exceptional painter what this was about, what are you supposed to do? Push through? Force the paint?
The answer was simple. “Don’t push the river.”
And so I didn’t. I started reading Life of Pi. It wasn’t until I got to the line “the riot of flowers is incessant” did the switch flip back on.
... here we go again.
WORK IN PROGRESS, acrylic base layer on canvas. 30x40”.
