Blank canvas. White and clean and waiting in the studio. Nothing better. Nothing more exciting. From the first decision on intent and direction, the first choice of colour, the process of making art is full of questions and choices and revelations. Good stuff.
A New Year of fresh canvas lies ahead, ready for inspiration. As an artist, the process of making art holds the greatest satisfaction for me. It is how I think about and respond to life, and how I contribute to this time and place. If I had no canvas, I would draw on paper, or doodle on envelopes or scratch in the sand. I need to create.
My next body of work has begun in preparation for a new exhibit in June. New ideas and perspectives I will explore and then share. Happy New Year.
