It is no secret that I have been struggling with subject matter for weeks. Every night seems to be a struggle to find something of interest to paint. It’s late by the time I start a painting so my subject matter is reduced to what I have close at hand, so I arrange it under the light and go through the motions.
Don’t get me wrong, I feel accomplished every night after finishing a session, training myself to SEE every night is a big part of what I’m doing, but I have this urge to push further. I want to train the grammar of art while at the same time feeling the emotion of the subject and dealing with the much harder task of conveying that to the viewer.
