A Different Speed
Work in progress
While looking at some of my paintings “in the flesh” for the first time, a friend’s comments remind me painting often moves at a slower pace than what we are used to.
Lacking the immediacy of the slick glass screen of social media, paintings with their lumps, stains, and smudges slowly reveal their making. A handmade history of accretions made visible.
Longer-looking brings rewards.
Thank you for your responses last week. Since then, I’ve been having some good conversations with people on and around my writing. I’ve also been going through old notes, looking at values, models and approaches to apply to my situation and thinking.
