Sometimes I just have to take a break from making art. It starts to feel too much like working for The Man (or The Woman, except not This Woman). There are many theories about making art and the connection to the spiritual, as in what makes art special or what makes art be art? I don't go in for a lot of that high concept stuff, but I do think that if I make art without the right emotional (or, call it spiritual if you have to) connection to the work, it will suck.
Thus, I'm just back from a breather in the interest of not making art that sucks. (Can you tell that I've been watching a lot of Anthony Bourdain?)
Reworked encaustic painting - still not renamed and still needing to be rephotographed to get it square.
Painting detail - this is not supposed to be square and it succeeds at that.
I like this painting. The colors and rhythm feel right and it looks very good in person.
I'll be back with more in a few days.
In the meantime, as Buster says, I hope you are well.
