so happy to announce to myself that i am painting happily again. i started sample above last night and have loved every moment of it. unlike the five paintings below- some of which have been taking me over *a year*- which have been frustrating the bi-jesus out of me. i can't stand working in any way that isn't a free-for-all; that has any rules, that abides by forms, even. i think that has been the problem, because as you can see from sample below, those all have forms in them.
