I keep coming back to the same objects and compositions because there are infinite ways to paint them. I marvel that the same medium and tools in different hands yield entirely different results. With each piece, I try to be aware and conscious that I need to begin differently, be aware of each stroke and be attentive to how that stroke relates to others, whether in color, value or texture, but I always backslide, forget and revert back to old habits. Then the struggle begins. As an 8 x 6, this panel seemed huge!
