Throwing shapes

Note to fellow artists.

Stand on your head first thing in the morning and stare out the window.

Regard the shapes, their unusual contours. The world upside down truly is different.

Paintings are just that. Interlocking shapes and balances of colour.

Even the most ill conceived works are not far from the best when you take shape into consideration.

Just move the shapes into more interesting positions. Do it first in your mind’s eye, failing that – just do it. (Royalty to Nike)

That is worth remembering when the self critic is in full flight.

Me? I occasionally throw a few shapes here.

Better late than never.
