Where do I go from here?, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

Traditionally, January is when we evaluate our performance over the last twelve months, and look at the direction we are headed.  I am a little late!

Artistically, I see nothing but question marks.  I want to have a clear plan, a path to follow and mark my progress, but alas, it evades me.

I looked through my posts from last year, and picked out my favorite pieces, hoping against hope that they will tell me where I am headed.

 Abstract Expressionism?


Thick Paint?



Really thin paint?

Or does it really matter?

All this thinking is making my head hurt!  

I am happy I found this many pieces, from last year, that speak to ME.  I am happy with them which makes me happy with me.

Maybe 2018 will find me treading the straight and narrow.....but somehow, I don't think so.

Thank you all, for joining me on my crazy, unplanned journey!

What a sweet photo of you and your husband. I have one of those too (keeps me grounded). Follow your bliss this year, all of your work is lovely. Be blessed!

Hi Carol,
I really know what you are talking about, it can be confusing being pulled in all sorts of directions as to styles and subject matters and even medium. It's fun to experiment and try out new things. I have found from a selling point of view all my collectors want is my still lives. My landscapes, abstracts or more impressionistic work gets totally ignored! So what to do, get stale doing the same ol' same ol' or have fun and grow in other directions?

Color, texture and amazing brushwork are always in your paintings Carol. Beautiful display of your work.
