Prior to this piece, I started several paintings and wasn’t satisfied with any of them. ‘Release’ is the result of getting frustrated that I couldn’t surpass my last painting or live up to my own expectations. I decided to let loose on this canvas and creatively release my emotions. I never reached the “wow I love this one” moment but I reached an ever greater moment - I realized that I don’t have to. Everything doesn’t have to be perfect. The point is, to do something outside of your normal and finished it. Letting something out is good enough. Beauty is in completion.
