Artist's Description

Coffee and watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm
A stone barn not far from us (Tarlton, South Africa) also used as a church on Sundays.
.
At first I was not satisfied with this painting at all. Why do we have days when everything seems to turn to mud? Surely what you did yesterday can be done again today?
.
I don’t usually criticize my work, it’s a useless exercise. When I don’t feel totally happy about a painting (you know that feeling when you keep on looking at it, willing it to satisfy your eye?), I put it one side, somewhere I can have a quick, unexpected look at it as I enter my studio, and if it doesn’t hit my gut with a hard punch, I will try and fix it or dump it.
.
But the I read this quote, “Be easy about this. Be playful about it. Don’t work so hard at it. Let your dominant intent to be to feel good, and if you don’t feel good, then let your dominant intent be to feel relief. Feel your way through it. If you think your way through it, you can get off on all kinds of tangents. If you feel your way through it, you can come quickly to your Core Energy, and when you do that only good can then flow to you.” - Abraham-Hicks – and decided to be easy about it. After all, I immensely enjoyed the process of creation!
