Deadlines and creativity

Autumn Sun Shower, 2016

There is a degree of pressure associated with completing a succinct and resolved body of work ready for exhibition in August in a short period of time. I only have two more weeks, and I certainly don’t want to be still painting in that last week.

Although I do have enough high quality resolved paintings to exhibit, I would still love to have another few weeks up my sleeve to put together some other works which more strongly follow the Sentinel series. I feel like I am only just hitting my straps now with this body of work and have lots of ideas about how I could push this further, but time is my limitation, but the creative process is unpredictable and cannot be sped up.

As the next fortnight is crunch time, its back to work for me!
