Looking beyond the obvious...
2012. It's a wrap...what a gift

Breaking free...

I spend a considerable amount of time in the studio and consequently inside my head.  Working at being an artist means sometimes you have to break free of your old patterns and do some major experimentation.  As the days started to shorten I found myself becoming more playful and free.  It felt really good to just paint and then wait for a bit and then look again to see what revealed itself.  I've spoken before about reinventing canvases and not being afraid to revisit a piece and give a good going over.  This process opens up so many possibilities for me.  It's kind of like going shopping in your own house.  Moving things around and reinventing a room or doing a tablescape for a holiday or a dinner party. It frees you up to rethink, re-examine and re-create something all over again.  I hope that in the spirit of breaking free that you'll give an old piece of work a new beginning.  I would love to hear from you and see what you create "the second time around."

By the way, got word that the DVD's are going to be released at the beginning of 2013 and not in December as previously noted.  I'll keep you posted!

Artfully yours, Chris
