Inspired by a song I spent a large portion of last night painting a picture that I can probably never let anyone see. That's a very weird thought isn't it?
In the early hours of the morning I came out of the creative coma I was in, only half concious of what I was painting, to find I'd done a painting very different to anything I gave done before, and good ... really good, but so potentially controversial that I cannot show it to anyone. I guess this fits the definition of "art for art's sake" down to the ground, but something in me just doesn't buy that. It's tempting to think that it's a waste of time if no-one can see it, but I don't feel that.
Just when I think I've got the reasons why I paint figured out, I prove myself to not actually have more than a clue.
