Week Off, Off Week

I considered redoing one of my paintings.

The first version of the painting was too textured

And didn’t sit quite right with me;

I remind myself that it’s important to know when to move on–

it’s important not to dwell or over-perfect.

Yes, the truth is in the details,

And yes, the artist is in the details.

But If I perfect the details then the work-

Itself,

becomes a lie,

And the artist becomes a liar.

My work is raw,

My work is real.

My truth is in the details.
