I like to paint. There was a time when I was scared to paint, thinking I wouldn’t be any good at it. I was used to drawing and liked the precision and control I had with it. Paint seemed messy and unforgiving. I can’t pinpoint exactly when I began to like painting. I think gradually I just learned to be less critical of my results thus allowing me more opportunity to work with paint. I like the tactile process of painting. I like filling in each square inch of a canvas, transforming it from a white blank space into a story. I like the toothy texture of the canvas. I like the look of the paint as it spreads across and fills in each crevice. I like the challenge of it even though it can be daunting. I just really like to paint.
