Leaves Floating

April 30, 2024

Sometimes, more often than I deserve actually, a painting almost paints itself. "Leaves Floating" is one of those.  It almost feels as if every brush stroke is preordained. I'd love to be able to call up all the disparate elements that occasionally align for that delightful experience to occur. But, sadly, it's an unpredictable and fleeting moment in my art-making life. I do know this, it never shows up on demand, and it only happens when I'm standing in front of a canvas with a wet brush in hand.

This is why the importance of a regular artistic practice cannot be overrated. It is essential. Go to work! You never know!
