This painting was completed after a hiatus from painting where I wondered if I even wanted to paint again. I started the painting last summer and set it aside. Months later I put it back on the easel and mixed up some black paint and ink and let the brush dance to get some graphic elements into it, some more contrast. As I worked on it over the next days, something woke up in me again. By the time it was finished I felt happy about painting again and had the most productive winter ever!
