I find it irredeemably frustrating to try to take pictures of my paintings, and yet I constantly attempt this seemingly Sisyphean task. New patterns are emerging, forms being born behind closed eyes.

More than anything its the way that digital captures the colour range. All of the intensity is gone from neon colours, all of the warm and light gone from metallics. I feel like I am painting more and more in colours that can only be seen with the naked human eye. Colours that have to be experienced in person to be understood and truly seen.

In the end these are just fodder for the scissors and part of the new dimension the work is taking, but I long for the ability to really represent what it is I am doing in the digital domain.
