It seems like I can never see very far ahead in my artistic journey. Instead, my view resembles a forest that’s overgrown with uncertainty. Making each painting is a way to clear just enough space so that I can take the next step forward. And the next step after that.

This painting is a reflection on the need to create these clearings; to cut back at the invasive species of social media, website popup windows, and 10-step plans for success; to a maintain a space for creativity to breathe and grow.
