I don’t think so.  I made some very small changes, and I like it better now, but it still doesn’t seem quite right.

Last one for today. Four (or was it 3?) paintings today, and two new ones yesterday, plus I finished a large one that’s been in the works forever, it seems! I feel so productive, except for the fact that the last 6 canvases are so so tiny…

(this one has been changed.  See the new version here.)

In our current cult of originality, the pressure is to have a personal style as soon as possible, and the classroom environments often have this mentality as well. Everyone is freaking out: “What’s my style? What’s my thing?” It’s too much too fast. This race for originality has, over the years, spread from that future-goal timeline to just after college to (now) inside college itself. A safety zone no longer exists.
