2018 has been a crazy year so far. And while it has been enriched with travel, meeting new people, education and so much more, I've really fallen behind with my artwork. There was a lot of push-and-pull the past few months. Juggling with thoughts and ideas and looking for new avenues and direction. So far the search has been fruitless and I decided it was time to hit the canvas while continuing my search simultaneously. One of my most favorite artists once said 'You're only as relevant as what you created today' and that is something I've tried to live by as it truly resonated with me. In retrospect, however, I've failed miserably the past few months and am starting to feel a little irrelevant.
Having said that, I've really thrown myself back into the grind and have been trying to play catch up. Been struggling with palettes, composition, and basic fundamentals when it comes to painting but I strongly believe its just a matter of time. Here's one of the pieces that depict my struggle to get back on track. It really is an interesting piece. I often used to call it the 'cursed canvas' because I've had to cover up 4 paintings, which were all complete garbage so there are 4 layers of entire works buried under this painting. The images are in chronological order.
