I believe every painting is a self-portrait to a certain extent. The painter leaves not only pigment but the mark of his soul on paper or canvas.
If art is anything, it is footprints left on a journey. By studying what painters and other artists leave behind, one can follow the moods and sensitivities not only of individuals, but of history itself.
Personally, spring could not have come at a more meaningful time for me. Something is breaking loose in my soul and breaking a long winter’s hold on my spirit. The creative force is beginning to flow again.
Have you ever come out of a long creative winter? What do you think caused it? What helped you along the way?
