I admit, I’m so addicted to painting. I spend so much time painting and thinking about painting instead of doing more “useful” things.
I believe, a painting has a life of its own that evolves during painting session. For me, a painting starts to take direction when I cover the canvas with paint. Then I start to solve many problems the painting may have, until I end up with something that tells a story, makes sense or delivers a statement.
