Borrowed Canvas

Normally unconscious collaborates with the Conscious without friction. One day I posed myself as a painter, my daughter and my wife can do decent painting. I have never tried it. I borrowed a canvas from them painted direct acrylic colour. No sketch. No plan. All I wanted to call it was '"State of Mind" I imagined my subconscious, brought it to a conscious level painted.. whatever came. I enjoyed the freedom when I did that. Complete to myself, no fear, no shame, no nothing, it looked like a mind which wanted to say it all at the same time. Painting is hiding somewhere. People at home said, I can do something different.. May be I am gonna have the guts to frame it...

Here is an interesting piece of info from Warren buffet about painting....

I love painting my own painting. I come down to the office, I get on my back, and I start painting. And I think I'm in the Sistine Chapel. It's my painting. Now, if somebody says, "Use more red paint instead of blue. Paint a seascape instead of a landscape," I would hand them the brush in five seconds and I'd say-I'd say a few other things, too - but I'd say, "Do your own painting. I'll go paint what I want to paint." I get to do my own painting. And then I get applause - if I deserve it. And I like that. I like having the painting admired, and I like to get to paint my own painting. That's so much more important to me than getting my golf score down three strokes or beating somebody at shuffleboard or something. I mean, it is the ultimate pleasure.
