“I think my grandfather may have the correct approach to art. He’s had a long career, and in his retirement he’s been working on building a boat. I doubt he’ll ever finish it, but I don’t think that’s particularly important to him. He wakes up every morning, drinks his cup of coffee, then goes out to his workshop to sand a tiny portion of wood. He doesn’t need to finish that boat to pay the rent. He can afford to have some distance from it, so he gets to enjoy it. He looks at that boat tenderly, like he looks at his grandkids. He gets to have a dream without the necessity of achieving it.”

Cake, 2014. oil on board.
I loved working on this painting so much. Doing a whole series of paintings, sculptures, and mixed media pieces inspired by 18th century decadence is so much fun. My search for ornate gold frames never ceases and I’ve garnered quite a collection. Now all’s I have to do is fill them :)

So strange to randomly come across your friends on the internet.
