My 2023 is starting out a bit slowly and that's just fine with me this year. For years I've done a painting on January 1st and then tried to do paintings every day or regularly there after, just to be in the studio after the holidays and get back to working. This year i just couldn't do it. On January 1st, all day I kept thinking ..."I should do a painting" but my heart wasn't in it so I let it go. It felt odd but it also felt OK to let to go this year.
Here are a couple more shots of my studio and what I'm working on. Mostly urban abstracts right now. I'll be working on this word/urban series this winter with "walk" and "yield" being integrated into the paintings...or that's the plan at the moment.
We are all our own Creation Story. Right now I'm feeling the need to slow down and listen, read, fill my well. Slow and steady is the course right now. What's your story/year looking like?
