This excerpt is from my blog as the year was ending in 2019.
Little did I know how life would change as 2020 unfolded and we faced the Pandemic.
- Thoughts from Sara Genn, USA 2019.
"How does one predict the future of the unfolding force of one’s life?”
Sara says...”My Quest only reveals herself to me when I pick up my brush. So I won’t ask you about your plans for your work in 2020. Instead, I’ll invite you to ponder with me some ideas for creative development, with a preference for behavioural tweaking:
- Experiment more. Try adding or omitting one stage in your existing process. Change your ground colour for two months.
- Cut your palette in half. Leave paintings 10% unfinished as a gift to yourself for the following day, with the idea that you’ll decide if it’s actually already finished, tomorrow.
- Stronger design. One neat area. Two mysterious areas. Three material areas — surface quality, edgemanship and brushwork, because you are making a painting".
