I am a local artist who returned to painting only recently. I find painting to be a practical and productive form of mindfulness. I paint only in acrylic on canvas. While I admire the ability of those who can paint almost photographically, I enjoy the physicality of both the subject and of thick paint on the canvas. I also like the painting to be a representation of a subject rather than a near identical replica. A painting should be what it is; a painting, and its beauty is in the way the artist has represented the subject on the chosen medium.
