Regarding painting...no pressure, no diamonds
I feel my painting style and direction leans towards abstraction with a measure of realism. Perhaps along with a small seasoning of Pop Art sprinkled on top. But I can be one frustrated painter. Some days the paint can just flat beat ya up.The tools are limited; a brush or palette knife, tubes of paint and some paper or canvas. No Photoshop to add embellishments or fix mistakes either. After an investment of time in any given painting, there's legit pressure in screwing it up. Mark Wegner, Painter - www.markwegner.com So perhaps I'm not really all that frustrated but rather a willing practitioner of an oils or acrylic-fueled, sado-masochism pursuit. There I said it. I feel better already.

However, at the end of some days a painting victory is worth the battle. Probably among the most satisfying events of my current creative life.
