before…(after is probably nearer than I think)

Sometimes I feel like, well, in the case of me and my art-making, that painting is a little like constructing a sentence.  The piece needs a subject…without a subject, well, you don’t really have anything….  That’s because, from my perspective, I work with a subject in mind….but, I’m painting along and suddenly I’ve come to realize that I do not know what the subject is here….it’s just too ambiguous I think.  And, there.  I’ve said nothing as well.
