As a painter, I have a vision of the perfect painting. Perfect in the sense of a flawless representation of my inner voice in a visual form. Ultimately, I am attempting to hit a bullseye on this ‘perfection’ with each painting. This vision is elusive and constantly evolving, thus creating a perpetual dilemma as I work. When we look at stars, we are unable to see them if we look directly at them. Yet, if we move our eyes to the space around a star, it will appear. This is similar to this perfect painting idea. The closer I think I am to nailing it down, the quicker it eludes me and morphs into something different. To paint, for me, is to constantly chase this ever-shifting bullseye.
