I just finished this HUGE sucker and damn damn damn it is pretty exciting. It is the FIRST abstract I have ever done, and I feel like I could suddenly take my work in a whole new direction I never knew existed.
I've been feeling guilty lately. I moved back to Montreal 2 months ago with the goal of making art ALL THE TIME (this seems to be a caps lock post), and it took a little longer to get settled in than I had anticipated. I was feeling like I had not accomplished enough. A few paintings are well under way at the studio (plus I actually *have* a studio!), and I have a bunch of stretched canvases, AND I'm still publishing the art subscription, and I did another illustration, AND I got illustration postcards printed and compiled a mailing list - but STILL for some reason I felt like I had done nothing. When I finished this today and took it out to the yard to photograph it, I realized that it's actually quite the accomplishment. It's hanging in my kitchen now and is big and crazy and insanely detailed, and I love it.
