I fluctuate between making very conventional paintings, whcih some people find boring, and others love, and making more off the wall stuff, which some people love, and others find annoying.
So I`ve always wondered which one of me is the real creative artist, it seems so unlikely that both could be possible.
At the moment my mood is more off the wall, and so I`m going to mbark on a set of prints roughly based on Indian Pacific Northwest art.
This thing about painting- what makes me question my ability as a painter- is that it is a medium which allows you to fuss alomost indefinately on work.
Prints, on the other hand, are very decisive, you do it, and you can`t go back, so they re-inforce very clear decisions, and the type of prints I do- monoprints really make you work fast and spontaneously.
But sometimes, of course, you`re not in the mood for speeed.
