The Push and Pull Dance

Paintings grow in and out as I go along.  They push me to try new things and often they pull me screaming ( just kidding).  I love having a painting sitting and waiting.  I stare at it and wake up in the middle of the night thinking about.  Lots of them never see the end or finish, but they help me with so many others that do come to that finish.  This one may or may not.  I am loving the journey and so very thankful for what it gives me.  So pushing and pulling happens on the canvas and in my head and it's all good.



Amazing painting of a great race !!!

I love your description of the painting process. I couldn't agree more. It is about the learning process and sometimes it brings nightmares, anxiety, anger, and above all the growth and sometimes success of a painting we are happy with. (When I'm having a bad day, I like to keep the exacto knife away from the canvas and I think only the dog hears me
When I saw this painting on my blog list, it looked finished. A great piece.

I so wish blogger had a like button. I love so many of the comments I get in response to my postings. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am grateful for such a community of artists through blogger and facebook and so many other social networks to share our journey, not just to see a finished work, but to be transparent and honest along the way. It is so fun!!!
So thanks art-traveller and Catherine, so very much.
