Sometimes it is actually quite hard to let go of old work, even when you don’t think it’s that great. Maybe some of the issue is when I started using memory as a theme, like I’m aware of what some of these paintings represent, but looking at them now they aren’t as good as I remember them being when I first produced them. I think that definitely shows the progress and refinement I’ve put into my style over the last 2 years. Part of me thinks “put these for a cheap quick sale” but then they aren’t my best and that feels like a tarnish on a reputation I don’t think I have yet.
There’s a new project I want to start soon, having had a rest, hopefully I give details next week as I begin preparation. It’s similar to the last one, but brings in a more personal aspect but I still have a detachment on it.
