Wednesday at the Academy
stressing the idea of not always aspiring to create a more-realized piece because sometimes we just have a sliver of the day to paint and what's important is that you paint. I used one of my food-art analogies - some days you aspire to make lasagna. You know it'll take hours, you know it will be delicious, but you don't have the time and you don't have the energy - so crack open a can of Chef-Boyardee instead and perhaps tomorrow you'll be inspired to make that lasagna.
The point also can be made that the quick, looser paintings can be liberating and just as satisfying. I love painting this way.
