Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Ink, Oil on Canvas, Wood.

I begin a painting and then I end it.

I push it and pull it. Painting is a rollercoaster. Some rides are gentler than others. Paint goes down, and then more, until I have something to start. And then it begins. It is like landing on a field.
