This month has been incredibly productive for me, both in terms of the painting I’ve been doing in the studio and in the amount of writing I’ve been doing. I’ve got multiple paintings in the works and I’ve started sketching out the framework for an entirely new body of work, which, if I can pull it off, will be different than anything I’ve done before. I feel like I’m still riding the wave of momentum that started building over the last couple months of 2022, after coming to some pretty terrific—and in some cases pretty profound—realizations around my work and where I see myself going over the next year. Looking forward is not something I’ve historically been very good at. Looking back, on the other hand, is something I do really well—often to pick at the scabs of some imagined shortcomings where I think I’ve failed myself or others. I just can’t think about 3 or 5 or 10 years out like some people do, especially since I’ve spent so much of my life not being able to see a 10 day plan, let alone 10 years.
