Sometimes a painting develops a life of its own, and changes, grows, almost evolves as progress continues. As if it’s truly alive.
This has been the case with my current work in progress, you may remember that it started off like this:
Then, morphed into this:
And kept changing until it looked like this:
Now, at this point, I began to worry that maybe I’d created the painting equivalent of Frankenstein’s Monster. What I saw on the canvas was almost frightening.
I mean, I was having visions of tossing this canvas on a fire and pretending it never happened.
So, at this point I’m ready to just let go of control, and let it develop as it pleases, maybe it will be an awesome work of art, maybe it will be dumpster-filler, either way it seems that in this case, the artist is no longer in charge, the painting is alive and is doing what it wants.

Fine Art America is the place to go for unsigned Prints of all my Paintings.
My Etsy shop is the place to go to buy my originals that I haven’t added to this site yet, I sell a few select prints there also, and there you can choose if you’d like me to sign them before shipping! Eventually I’ll move all of my fine art products to this page, and leave only crafts on Etsy, but for now my art is in both places.
