Are you so indecisive that you are taking up residence in the valley of indecision?
This painting is a cautionary tale.
It came about because I was surrounded by several people in my work unable to make crucial choices. I myself to a lesser degree, was bellyflopping between two approaches to my art website, which I’m in the process of redesigning, unable to find a solution that satisfied both sets of criteria I had.
I woke up yesterday with all this flurrying around in my thinking, and then I had the idea for this painting. After I painted it in absorbed concentration, I heard from the work folks that they had found resolution, and an unexpected expert surfaced in my life that effortlessly answered my website conundrum.
That is a story of making conceptual work; it is part therapy, and part problem solving, on many levels. This is why I am so impelled to do it. Painting this cleared the way to all of us no longer feeling stuck.
This highly textural pastel painting is 12″x12.” You can see the entire work above and close up details of it below.
If you’ve got something to work out, I recommend painting your way past the impasse.
