Painting With an Open Mind

July 17, 2010

Saw this quote by artist Nancy Reyner, and I like it.  It speaks to the way I often work, but never thought of it in these terms.  I think too often we try to force the medium, rather than letting it show us what it’s capable of.

“I like to think of painting as a collaboration – a collaboration between my initial idea and the medium. By allowing the medium to change my mind during the process, painting never ceases to be inspiring.”
 —Nancy Reyner

Paint will do wonderful things if we just let it.
