Project LV One – Day 245 – Looking Back and Forward

POrtraits from 2012

I think it is far to say that my portrait painting has hit a bit of a crises – somewhere along the way I seem to have lost my sense of adventure and reversed into something I am not and as usual the painting never lies.  These three paintings I made back in 2012 have more power and immediacy than the work I am producing at the moment.

Digital 2013

Again the digital work from 2013 has a passion and interest that is also missing from the latest paintings.  So what to do?   Is there something wrong with what I am now making or is it just a case of too much Christmas fare has made me just a little maudlin about what I do?

So what to do about all this?   Why have I started making some really boring works?  It really is a recent thing and I am not sure how to get out of this funk.  I guess the only way is just to knuckle down and paint my way out of things.   “Oh the pain Will Robinson..the pain the pain.”
