This is one of my favorite paintings that I've made this year and here is the thought behind it:
In January 2016 I started working full time as an artist at an event company. Up until this point I had worked in various positions that just weren’t my thing for various reasons. As I settled into this satisfying and challenging yet laid back job I realized that I had lost a major force in my life that I was always working against: quitting my job. In my previous positions, including when I owned my business, I was always trying to figure out what I would be working at next. It wasn’t a fun thing, but it gave me a drive and purpose.
This painting represents me trying to find a new force to work against. Its the awkwardness of finding that you miss the old conflict and need to create a new one.
