Hi, Craig. I think your work is very good. You certainly have talent. I'm just wondering why you don't paint something more than these "solo appearances." You could do so much more with your gift. I mean this in a positive way... not as a criticism.

Hi Susan,
Thanks for looking at my paintings! I have painted larger, more complex pieces in the past and I will probably do so again in the future. At the moment I am teaching full time and enrolled in graduate school. In addition, we have a three month old son! I don't have a lot of time to spare for painting and I have found that I tend to loose interest with larger paintings if I can only dedicate an hour or so a day to them. I much prefer to concentrate on resolving a simple visual issue with the amount of time I have. For now, this way of working suits my temperament.
