A New Cave
So, I repainted the cave into a space I wouldn't mind going in to. And now that I can look at it again, I will be able to come back to it and continue painting.
It's strange to me the way different mediums inspire different ways of working. I haven't figured out how to capture the immediate emotional intimacy in oil that I have done in India Ink. India Ink inspires a light and hopeful raw expression from me. Oil seems to create a heavy, tedious tendency to bring up every serious thing to the surface. If I could somehow merge these two things together, I might have something.
