Recent Work and Pick up from Mills Pond Gallery
Recently, I placed an additional table in the middle of the living room in addition to the studio space. We decided to name it Craft Table and set this up as an area that is always ready for drawing. Most of all, my 6-year-old loves it. This is because I can pull out my brushes and paint anywhere, anytime, without having to do a cleanup.
I started working on my first new shape since making the craft table.
These new works make the life of a freelance painter who is prone to mannerism more lively.
Today, as always, I visited the gallery after the exhibition and picked up my painting. It's good if the painting sells well, but when it doesn't sell and I have to go back to pick up the painting.
Should I have drawn better? Didn't it suit people's tastes? Should I have been thinking more about people's tastes rather than my artistic interests? And so many regrets pass by. However, as I bring back the big table that is the center of my life and always draw and think about the picture, these worries soon become nothing. People who love painting probably know what I mean even without explaining it.
It is the reason that new attempts and new paintings always free me from excessive worries. Painting always gives me great joy.
