I got back from Spring Lake a couple days ago and I've been gathering my thoughts to write a blog post. The first thing I'm proud to say is that I'm going to be showing some paintings soon at The Frederick Galleries in Spring Lake, N.J. I did a ton of painting while I was at the beach and I'm honored to be showing them at such an amazing gallery.
Doing all these paintings also gave me the momentum to push through some art blocks that I've been feeling lately. The main block was that I was putting a lot of limitations on myself as a artist. In terms of my working method, I would say, "I can only do this and that means that I can't do that." But what I've realized is that instead of picking and choosing, I should combine techniques to synthesize my own working formula. That's what I've been focusing on a lot recently.
This has really motivated me to work harder lately. I woke up early today because I was ready to paint and I couldn't wait. I plan to up my game a lot more from here on out!
