The Finishing Process

There weeks later… the finishing process continues. Sometimes I will mess up a beautiful piece because it’s in the studio. Surrounded by all the paints and I can’t help myself. Like a beautiful buffet. So much visual delight and I can’t stop myself. This is one of those pieces. Often I will have about 10 pictures of the process. Where it started and how it ended.

I bought a table top easel and find that the finishing process is refined when I take the piece out of my studio and place it on the kitchen counter. Only have the colors I am using and just wait for the visual conversations I will have with myself. What should I name this? What inspired these colors? Am I really an artist? No, I am not an artist. I just get so much therapy and pleasure out of painting colors on a a canvas. I get so much pleasure out of the process that I have to call myself an artist to be able to sell and design and perhaps make some money doing what I love.

Wait!!! Isn’t that what being an entrepreneur is all about? Doing what you love and then turning it into a business. Even doing what we love has it’s ups and downs. But we/I keep coming back to it. We keep refining and the finishing process start all over again with each piece that is painted.

I am happy with this piece. Part of my finishing process is coming to a point where I can say out loud, “I Love It”. If I have to talk myself into loving it then it’s not yet complete. Today, I LOVE IT. Yesterday I could say I LOVE IT and the day before. That is my finishing process. No more paint, no more over thinking and trying to love an unfinished piece.
