All is not OK all the time.
I do my best work when
my mind is in a bar fight with my soul. In periods of uncertainty, the one thing you can be certain of is failure in a painting. Every painting of mine fails before it gets better. The other thing you can be certain of, is it will get better. Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo. It’s important to me, as human and painter, to experience the entire rotation of life’s challenges. You have to experience everything in order to report to the world accurately.
As I go through these seasons, my work evolves. My approach to light and form and subject changes. At the end of a day spent at the easel, the only thing on my mind is “was I loyal soldier? Did I move forward, even just a little bit, the things that truly matter?
Too often, success is mistaken with popularity. If your work can connect with one person, then you have succeeded.
Our job, as I see it, is to wake up every morning
with a rage for life and
to go out on the boardwalk and
walk in a straight line
like there is no wind and
there is no rain.
This was an excerpt from an older post that I stumbled on while transferring my ig content to my personal blog on my website.
