I love looking at paintings. It’s high on the list of my favorite things to do. I love making paintings. It’s another of my favorite things. I also love writing about paintings. Of these three, I’ve professionally engaged with writing the least. There are probably a number of reasons for this. Some are good, and some are likely not so good. Maybe it's a lack of confidence. Sometimes I tell myself, I’ve been busy working on other parts of my creative process, and maybe this is true. Maybe it’s just been absent mindedness on my part. But recently I’ve had some requests to start a blog, and put my ideas about painting, art, etc. out there. Well here goes.
