Learning How to Simplify your Paintings
One of the most difficult things for me to do, is to leave a painting simple. It is as if I need to prove that I’ve put a lot of work into a painting in order for it to have value. Of course the value is in the ease in which the painting is able to communicate its message.
The same goes for all forms of art, when I think about it. For instance Morey & Feldman’s “Someday My Prince Will Come” Music and Lyrics that translate easily into many interpretive music styles, because of its seeming simplicity.
