Painting is the hardest art form for me, due to my lack of patience. Carving and illustration take lots of patience, too, but there is something about paint that makes me want to throw a bunch on the canvas really quickly and call it done. It doesn't look good when I do, but that's the temptation. Bad habits learned in my high school art classes, I suppose. I try to push myself to get better and overcome the temptations, to grow as an artist, knowing my weaknesses and working with them. Good things happen when I do.
