“Blue Star Cat” contemporary figurative painting
I seem to be experimenting more with methods that are new to me instead of painting in ways I’ve started to understand. The quest seems to be able to paint completely from my imagination without the use of models. I know that this will require the discipline to do things like abandoning spatially-constructed scenes and distinct figures, but I am reluctant to do so as of yet because I feel like I have just begun to explore what is possible with more conventional art. What I would like to avoid is making pictures that look sophomoric because I couldn’t decide the direction of the work. Hopefully I can grope toward the light without creating too many embarrassing failures.
