With the warmer months approaching, I've found myself becoming restless, both in the daily routines of life and also in the studio. So many ideas are clouding my brain...which is mostly a good thing! I often do rough sketches so that I dont forget my ideas and can revisit them later. I've been wanting to step outside of my comfort zone and try new things, which brings me to the painting i've recently been working on "flourish". It's a self portrait (which i rarely do) and it symbolizes all of the creative thoughts in my head growing. William Morris, a famous 19th century textile designer was the inspiration behind the floral pattern. It feels good to experiment, whether this painting turns out well or not it will be a learning experience and sometimes we learn most from the things at which we dont succeed. Besides, I have a sketch book filled with plently of creative ideas but I'm going to give this one a shot!
I'm an observer by nature, always searching for inspiration.
