For me, painting has always been about learning and problem solving and to get the result I’m after. I’m not very good at planning a painting. The ones I like the most of mine usually just kind of happen. After doing this for so many years it has become such a part of me that I don’t think about the process that much, I just kind of do it. I remember when I started out how hard it was to figure everything out, but over time it just got easier. In no way do I consider myself a great painter, I just think I figured out a way to paint that suits me. I think each painter figures out his or her own way and tries to work with what they have.The Grain Edit blog has posted photos of Matte's studio as well as a number of his paintings.
