EXPLORING INCLINATIONS AND GROWTH

This is a study in which I reconsider how I painted the first version.  There is no way around change if we are growing in our painting journey.  Our tastes and what excites us about painting is constantly evolving.  I think it's a mistake to attempt to "nail down" a particular style.  What we learn always leads to new discoveries about what could be.  Here, I am indulging a direction that I find exciting.  The fun-factor in this painting was off the charts.  I'll be trying to learn and expand more of the possibilities.
