The Universe Made Me Do It

Sometimes the universe works against you and other times it works for you.

Normally I try to balance my time between drawing and painting. However, this week due to circumstances and a certain asshole I was unable to sit down and draw as I would normally. Bummer, however, this turned out to be an opportunity to spend more time working on my current painting project which I have tentatively entitled “Singularity”.

Over the past month or so I have been struggling with “getting into” my painting and now, because of this, I have become engrossed in my painting. It was just simply a matter of allocating more time.

Of course the drawing suffers. That’s okay because my drawings were becoming stale. I needed a break.

As for my painting — I’m still feeling my way around but it’s slowly taking shape and I can see an end point. Now it’s just a matter of devoting all of my energy and time to this project.

I have finally convinced my inner self that not every brush has to be perfect or correct. After all, it’s only a painting. A painting is nothing more than just dabs of paint on a surface. To mean something more is up to you — the viewer.

The best part of painting: seeing paint go from my brush to the canvas — spectacular!
