If you are going to a job, in my case a painting, then it makes sense to do the very best that you can otherwise what is the point? It always helps to know exactly what you want to convey to any person who views the finished article. In “Big Bang” I wanted to convey the absurdity of the human species’ propensity towards killing stuff for fun. I hope I succeeded. In the case of this new painting I am doing, as yet untitled, I would like to convey the sadness of “longing”. This lofty subject demands a serious approach because there is always someone suffering in ways that I can only imagine.
