|Lola and Mommy painting together.|
So one of these days I looked at my studio walls and floors and realized the crazy amount of unfinished paintings I have.
I start painting after painting and never consider them done! I keep coming back to them and adding more stuff...which would be ok if I wasn't talking about dozens of them! They're beginning to pile up!
Plus, now I'm thinking that maybe I do that out of insecurity...you know, if I show you a photo of a painting and say "work in progress" and you don't like it, it's ok, because "I'm not done with it yet". Get it?
Well, now I decided it's enough. Once I heard an artist (don't remember who) saying that she doesn't like to hold on to paintings for too long because she likes to keep the energy moving... Or something like that. And she was so right! So, slowly but surely, I'm going through all my paintings, one by one, and actually FINISHING them. And by finishing them, I also mean, signing them, scanning them, and putting them for sale.
IT. FEELS. SO. GOOD.
