This painting, I think, shows the right-brain/left-brain struggle I seem to be constantly engaged in. I was pleased with the paint-handling in the yellow cup but got tight with the other cup and lemons. Somewhere, embedded in my psyche is the knowledge that I'm not painting objects, but rather, making a painting. Coaxing that knowledge to the forefront of my brain as I work is still so difficult! But I guess that's why we practice.
