"2013 Exhibition "
Soho Galleries Crown St. Sydney Australia
The more I paint, the further I seem to be from my destination.
Every time I complete a painting I think of two more.
Every time I complete a solo exhibition, I realize I have leant so much, that I want to turn around and start painting for my next exhibition.
It happens every time. I realize this would be the case in all forms of endeavor, but it amazes me the amount there is to learn, about painting a picture.
I must admit that I have known for some time, that if I was to feel I have learnt it all, or I have painted the best I can, then there would be no incentive to paint any more.
So although I want to paint my best picture, I never want to realize that I have.
I am not here to show how well I know language, nor am I here to argue the theory of painting, to become famous or make ridicules amounts of money. Not that I would reject these things.
I am here, simply to show where I am up to in my endeavors to paint my own masterpiece. It is my quest and I will do it the way I want, but I would love to share it with you.
