I feel like my painting is looser and more joyous. It didn't take long. I don't like to admit it, but when I get stuck, I feel kind of down. This all sounds too profound for a daily painter. Truth be told, I have been working on something new, but because it's new it didn't turn out as expected so I had to put it aside. I'm back to what I enjoy and hope to try new things again in the future.
