encaustic on birch 6x6
I know that I get a wee tentative when I paint. I'm always questioning myself if this is right, or that is the right shape or color - or whatever. I'm hesitant about brush strokes. I don't use enough paint. In doing that I have a lot of rework, because I don't believe in my decisions, and many of my paintings look kinda wishy-washy. These are not the ones you see here. They are the ones that get scraped back and end up in my recycled wax box. :) I'm not this way in my real life, so why am I this way when I paint? Not sure, but I know its time turn the corner and to walk the walk.
In painting - lets just put it this way and cut to the chase - paint it like you mean it - really. Be decisive, be confident. In the end, its art. Its your interpretation. Its how you see it. Paint on! Happy Friday everyone!
