When the need for change out weights the fear of failure a whole new universe is waiting to be uncovered, it lays just beyond the safe, predictable and familiar. It hides within all of us waiting to be awakened.
This painting was done a few years ago, it turned my art into an inward search in an effort to express not what was in front of me but what is inside.
Everyone has an internal compass, it has no needle to guide, you only know you are heading in the right direction when it just feels right. It is undefinable, your guides are instinct, feeling and intuition. It may lay past the likeness of the subject, you have to be willing to give up the safe, predictable and familiar, you have to be curious, vulnerable and willing to fall on your face. The treasures lay inside each of us waiting to be uncovered
