Flowing Like a River

Your life as an artist is like a river. The river is like flowing paint on a canvas. When artists seek to understand their world and themselves, they need to allow their river to flow.

When I paint, if I seek for something to happen it usually doesn’t. It is only when I untangle the ‘rights and wrongs’ and the ‘good and bad’ within my mind that things begin to manifest. Once untangled, the river begins to flow again. As I let the paint ‘be’ and allow myself to flow with the work like a river, then and only then am I able to step back and say that it is good. The work flows, like a river, it is free.
