There is something very satisfying about taking an old painting I’ve had under the bed for the last year or two and putting it in a frame and hanging it on a wall. It looks better for one thing, but more than that, in actually putting it on a wall I’m acknowledging that it’s not only finished but ready to be seen by others. That in turn serves to spur me on to paint more of them. I’m not especially prolific but I am pleased with what I’ve produced. When I walk past them I smile. It’s a good feeling.
