With my portrait project completed I feel a little adrift as to what to do next. For the last 3 years I've been working towards gallery shows and now I'm wanting to try and figure out where my passion is in painting and drawing. What really makes me excited about the work? I've heard many times it's the process but I'm not sure I believe that. I'm thinking it is something that runs deeper in me.
I've had some thrilling moments this last year while working towards the portrait show but when I think back my thoughts go to the plein air pieces, landscapes and the still life setups at the farmer's market that I did throughout the summer and my traveling in Italy. I have learned so much this past year. It's the growing and challenges in getting to that next level I believe is where my passion shines through the most. Well I guess that is my answer to what makes me passionate about this artist life I've chosen for myself. I think I will keep on this path and keep painting the things that thrill me and hope that others can feel that excitement as I work towards excellence.
