Had a very interesting and stimulating discussion and critique last night as part of Lorin Willey's oil painting class. Delved a little deeper than usual into the "me" of my art and surprised myself a little.
I find that I'm much more passionate about painting when I'm not in class. Why is that? Because I can avoid scrutiny? Probably. So I just need to get over it and do what I want to do, paint what I want to paint no matter who else is present, and have fun with it.
I've been thinking a lot lately about passion and love....and sex. Life is too short not to have all the sex you can... passionate, exploring, discovering, sex. Preferably with your partner, if he is able.
