Back to Painting

Now that the inventory process is more of a routine, I am back to painting with a good focus.

The time away from the studio allowed me to integrate some of the experiments I had done earlier with acrylics: it feels more natural now and my hands know what to do better. The process of assessing my previous work is beneficial in many ways, refreshing my mind and giving me a broader perspective.

Currently, my aim is to paint not as a statement but as a practice: proceed from where I am now, with what I have understood so far and simply go with what comes at this time. I would like to see where that takes me. And with this intention, here is a start.
