We’re getting close to the end of the first chapter. Exciting!
I’ve been doing a bit of painting on canvas and blocks of wood lately and have been really enjoying it. I love interacting with physical mediums after a day of interacting with digital displays. It’s a huge relief that you can’t keep fiddling with the work. A lot of stuff happens in a painting that you have to roll with or risk overworking the piece and making it grotesque. My instinct is to keep everything under control out of fear that things will get out of hand if I don’t and there’s something meditative and relaxing about being forced to give up some of that control. Staying in control all the time is exhausting.
