The following is an exercise from Molly Gordons' article on creating an artist statement: (It's a fill in the blank exercise and my answers are in red)
When I work with oils I am reminded that I love brushwork and texture.
I begin a piece by setting up a still life with classical lighting.
I know a piece is done when I feel I can reach out and touch the objects.
When my work is going well, I am filled with a sense of relief and exhilaration (OK maybe a little self judgement).
When people see my work, I'd like them to sense the beauty and drama of everyday objects.
This is definitely harder than it looks...I'm going to cogitate on these answers for a few days.
