one thing i have learned is that the mind can get in the way if intuition. some deal with this differently, of course, because of our individual life's experiences. some choose keep working through it and others will destroy everything in the studio. as for myself, i tend to stop before i start and think about it too much knowing damn well that it's as easy as just putting some paint down to get started. i have also realized that time away from art making is essential in order to feed the work. life's experiences are the nutrients for making art. this is just my opinion and what works for me. i still find it funny how difficult "making pictures" can be.
things are moving along and i'm excited to see where they go. ahh, intuition there you are!
