Has been a quiet Thursday night in the studio. Painting has come to stop temporarily as I try to figure out where I'm going with it. Lately I feel lost with my art, I love what I do but I keep hearing too often by friends that I'm all technique and no passion. Yes, rough words to hear, and I do understand that to many an onion or tomato may not mean much, but when looking at a painting you're not just looking at the subject, but the art object itself. This is something I will not get into further since I can go off for a while. So to keep myself busy and to warm up before picking up a brush, I decided to varnish some paintings that needed it. Varnishing makes such a difference, colors pop out more, the paintings become alive.
