Hello, Old Friend

img_9745Quite a few people have asked If I view paintings as my children. I don’t see it that way. No. I consider my paintings to be much different than children. I consider them to be friends.

Creating a piece of work is more like getting to know someone than it is like raising a human being.

When I send a painting out into the world, I don’t tell it to be careful. I tell it “good luck, friend.” Because it is a friend. A friend with a life and a journey all its own.

And when I see a painting again, after it’s gone off into the world, it’s a lot like reuniting with an old friend. At that point, it has its own stories to tell of the places its been.
