I don’t know what to say about these, other than I like to paint. My favorite part is that when I finish a scroll, it can make someone happy and I never have to look at it again. By the time I finish a painting I hate it, I don’t have any of my own art on my walls at home. I’m not sure if that is the creator’s curse or I have just looked at it for too long. It’s a bit like the practice of impermanence, I work super hard nonstop on a project until I can’t work on it any longer, then I release it into the world never to cross paths with it again.
At some point I will talk about the fun stuff, pigments, potions, papers, gums and metal leaf. Though I have to be careful not to blur the line between art and science, it could be dangerous.
