Painting with Passion
Aristotle said, “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”
What is significant to you about your subject or concept?
Find the thing you love most about the subject or concept, and focus on that. Let everything in the painting and in your experience of creating the painting be an expression of that feeling. One of my favorite moments is sitting back and absorbing a freshly laid in colour, seeing how my passion translated itself on to the canvas. Time has passed not knowing if it was 3 minutes or 3 hours. I’m “in the zone”.
