As I start the third painting in my quest to paint orange I can report that my painting practice is starting to feel different. I don’t love orange. I have written about this mild contempt before. I hold this color at a distance, thus, I can look on my practice differently. I can distance myself from the product. How freeing! What an accomplishment!

Painting distance isn’t about architectural 3 pt perspective. It is about the space I have mentally created to distance myself from the work. I don’t think the mood of my practice has changed as I am still extremely motivated and excited to be painting. I love painting and I love learning new things in my practice.

Work in progress, Left-handed, Right-brained 12 x 12 oil on panel

My best,
