To thine ownself be true....


I'm working on some sketches as of late because I am finding it is where I find the most comfort in my work. What little painting I'm doing is becoming more impressionistic and looser, which actually makes me more pleased with them. It is so calming to be at peace with my work, instead of at war with it. Graphite works are where I started and it seems its where I belong. If I had just stayed with them instead of thinking I could paint, I would have saved myself a lot of misery. Its what we do in life sometimes, stray from who we really are, thinking that being someone we are not is better. Only to find ourselves much happier when we come back to who we really are.

  1. Your graphites are gorgeous! Still keep painting though. It's frustrating at times, I know:)
