It turns out I’ve been subconsciously choosing to use figures very sparingly in my paintings for decades. I guess I knew that… But last night my inner self made it very clear to my outer self that this dynamic was happening and it’s time for it to go. It’s scary for me to think of adding figures into my work… Because I’ve believed for decades that I’m just not good at making figures. At the same time, I’ve always had a part of my mind that assures me someday I will be quite the figure artist!
