Yes, we keep on keeping on. I have been on a break from painting for a few months. I'm regrouping, re-deciding, rethinking. I really like what I was doing. Color field monochromatic brushstroke heavy artworks. I even like the super reduced down works. I'm attached to it over and over again. There is a complexity in the simplicity of color play. It may be old hat, but I love it. It's a bit quiet for the scene right now. There is no disfigurement or hard lines, it's more meditative. Anyway, when I do pick up a brush again-- I will revisit these ideas.
Hope you are making works and not being discouraged by the world around.
