Sometimes, very occasionally, something magical happens. From your brushes, from the sweep of your palette knife, emerges something so nice, you wonder if you’ll ever be able to top it (actually I already know this, since I painted again since, and produced utter tripe).
You can’t win ’em all, but you can bask in what it felt like when all the planets aligned and somehow you made good art.
And it’s not that these paintings are perfect. But when I painted these it was like I was merely holding the brushes. A human conduit. Perhaps I got out of my own way for a change!
