BLUE CHAUFFEUR SERIES

The Blue Chauffeur Series is a series of paintings carved out of a hectic schedule and a head space influenced by voices other than my own. It is a realization that despite all of these things I will still do what I love, pick myself up and paint what makes me happy.

I used to be an artist, but now I find myself driving. Pick ups and drop offs have become a regular routine. Some days the monotony and dullness of repetition are accompanied by the voices of those who say I shouldn’t. They chip away at my soul. I am unable to break free. The days of deciding what I want to do with my time are over. Those decisions are made for me and I feel cheated. Defeated.

 

But then I snap out of it. I look over. The clouds are parting and I can see the beauty of what I am passing. That feeling of inspiration comes back. I can see clearly that I am fortunate to have these driving days- they are busy but limited. My passengers will soon be driving themselves. I remember that what I used to be is what I am. 

 

As I drive, I let the things I see sink in. I see the land go by as I saw it as a child driving with my parents. I stop the car, take a quick picture and make myself a promise to paint it later.
