In looking at some of the work I had created over the last five years, I decided to paint some of my older paintings in my current paintings. Here, I’m painting a scene I set up in the house with a chair and a stool and the idea of a work from before.
In looking at past work, I found when I re-drew or re-painted, the act helped me remember ideas or feelings or learnings or understandings gained from the time before. With this work, I remember painting the original painting featured in this painting and being enlivened by making loose line marks that created the bag and shoes of the Bilby. And so I continue this play echoing loose lines into the marking and the making of the chair. And I like the disruption left where the wall interrupts the legs of chair. Sometimes painting is a joy.
