The Value of Introversion


I've lost 3 friends in the span of a year and for this sensitive soul, the burns run deep. 

What came from it was the realization that non-intuitive, focused painting like this keeps my mind from running in seven different directions, and reminded me how much I thrive on introversion. 


The studio provides a dedicated space where retrospection is part of the process. Analysing sections of the painting, finding problem areas and devising a game plan. 

Intentional alone time is crucial to focused painting and I highly recommend it. 


Periodically through this project, I'll interject thoughts, musings and quotes from Behind the smile.
