Keeping your hand in it.

'Keep painting - day in - day out. Be absorbed by it'. -Milton Avery

My sentiments exactly! (And with the weather as blustery as it is on the west coast of Ireland it's easy to stay indoors in the studio.) It's the processes I'm engaging with that keeps my hand moving, the spirit of the work alive. With several works on the go now I rotate the canvases. This helps me keep a fresh perspective and build insight. I find new ways to bring the works along together. They all inform each other and my ideas flow freely.
