Here’s the painting I’ve been struggling with. I think it’s finished now. I’m still always surprised by how demanding making a painting is. The process is one where I fight the urge to leave it at “good enough”. At a certain point in a work I decide that I like certain elements, and so I lose complete freedom. This is where I want to say “good enough” and be done with it before I “ruin” it. But the painting will not let me settle for “good enough”! That’s a very good thing because the painting makes me risk and therefore learn. And what is the point of ever settling? I make art to explore and test and find out things, not to produce a product. It always makes me smile an ironic smile when someone says I must be having so much fun! Fun is not the word, although it can be. It’s more accurate to say I feel a sense of wholeness when I go all the way through to the end with a painting.

when I met #lariwashburn, I was blown away by the prolific visual daily journals that she keeps. drawings, sketches and small paintings that are expressions of her daily observations and moods. I love these journals as they cut through the clutter, noise and over-stimulation that we are bombarded with daily. I hope to have more of her small works-on-paper in store this season. in the interim we love how her drawings are translated to this ceramic platter.
