Painting "Continuum"

Acrylic, watercolor on paper, yellow packing tape
4 feet tall, 3 feet wide (1.5m x 1m)

What is success? Love is success, isn't it? To love something. To have felt it and known it to be true. I love this, a small thing, but love it all the same, even before it was anything. I can't explain it but it's a true picture. I know it ends in the top left corner. We're out in nature with this picture. Color is a distraction. There's something beyond sight. I'm deeply fearful of not succeeding. What is success? Loving what you do. Having people see what you make and being excited by it. Is pursuing love and excitement the right road? It seems to be. But that road must pass through cities and past houses. It must be a known road used by people. It can't just be my own road. That's not love. That's not success. That's just fear.
