My friend Lyndia noticed immediately that I have used this model before and with peonies too. Sometimes you just don't feel finished with a subject. Some artists paint the same thing over and over and over. Usually I get bored with a subject and want to move on but here is a case where I had more to say. I've been attracted to profiles in the last year or so also and since these days I am trying very hard to paint what I want to paint rather than what I feel is marketable I am enjoying myself much more. Trying to come up with pieces that might "sell" is getting harder and harder and the frustration level gets pretty high. I now have a small monthly pension so can feel less pressure. Have to be careful and I can't buy that new camera I've been wanting but somehow it isn't keeping me up nights:-) In fact, knowing I can now pay my regular monthly bills is helping with the sleeping-like-a-baby thing immeasurably! Life is feeling pretty good these days and I am working hard at keeping all the bad news out there from getting me down. All we can do is our little part to leave the world a better place and encourage others to do the same.
