Lettering / Analog Meduim / Self Initiated
Sometimes the most satisfying things we create, we create for no reason at all.
You sit. Your silent eyes burn in the hazy glow of your iMac. Your tinnitus rings into the foreground of consciousness and you realized it's been 4 hours since you meant to get up to pee.
You need a break.
Painters supposedly experience an increase in their emotional intelligence level while working. Allowing your emotions to come out in painting helps you understand your own emotional state and realize which factors contribute to your varying moods. Should I really grab that 4th cup of coffee or do I just need to take a walk?
Experimenting with different forms helps you understand your own triggers, and perhaps the emotions you use to create project onto the viewer. What have I discovered about my deep emotional state? When I paint, I find myself striving to mimic a vector application. Great.
