Difficult difficult, lemon difficult.
Making paintings isn't the walk in the park many assume. I seem to find myself ploughing through paintings at a fairly fast pace but I'm not convinced that they have any relevance and if they were done or not my practice would neither progress or digress. This could of course be nonsense and they may well be important. All I can rely on is time and patience, I suppose that when work comes so easily and readily I do not trust it. If the process of a painting does not have problems I find it hard to believe I have done it well. Relying on stress to push myself further is what has been the driving force in the past but I am not sure what to rely on now, instinct perhaps? Sporadic mark making?
