Now that I’ve crossed the 100 painting mark, I thought it might be time to expand on some of my thoughts behind this project. One big important idea is that these original paintings are not just for your eyes, but for your hands, too.
Finding a painting is a physical experience. You can pull it out of the bag, feel the texture of the stitches and paint on paper, flip it over and see how it’s put together.
There’s something special about holding something that has been created and loved and worked with by a person’s hand. There is a different energy in it as an object. Hold a painting in one hand, and a print of the same painting in the other hand, and you can feel the difference. I want to gift this experience to someone. It is intimate, energetic, and positive. Maybe it’s even a little sexy.
