Permission to Play

Permission to play. I feel a mood shift going in. Hopefully it’s catching (in a better way than the nasty virus) This piece was painted a couple months ago rather spontaneously and has been hanging out with me in the studio. There is something about the ease that I liked. Something about “ease” has made me uncomfortable as an artist. I am always seeking it and then don’t always trust it when it happens. If it comes out naturally, it feels like cheating.
