When you wonder if your style has gone out of style, doubts stir and you question why and for whom you paint. To paint is not an option; it is an obsession – passion. Artists desire to express inner feelings about the world and what we see. Painting, therefore, is never a chore until we allow marketing to interfere with what we paint. Galleries may agree to represent work if only one paints ‘this’ and not ‘that.’ Though this improves their sales, it robs from ours creative bottom line. And so we see in far too many galleries production paintings of the same subject/composition tweaked in multiple manors to satisfy marketing.
