New Work: “Sanctuary”

Sanctuary

To all following along, thank you for the encouragement and support of my new painting “Sanctuary”. I really have no idea where this path will take me artistically but that seems really exciting to me as an artist. I’ve felt for a while that my work needed to grow and agonized over how to deal with those feelings. I ultimately realized that I could contemplate this dilemma forever but couldn’t have an opinion about what I never allowed to exist. I decided to just go for it. I tried to paint less with my head and more with my heart. I tried to stop being predictable and “Sanctuary” is the result. I learn something with every painting and this one has shown me so much but also posed a lot of new questions. I have already begun a new canvas and am excited to get to work free of all the old rules and habits that held me back before.
