After 2 years of not doing complete paintings...Right now I'm very fond of paintings in which you can see the brush strokes and are not completely blended.
I really got tired of trying to tweak things here and there, It still doesn't feel completely right, but when you just don't know what to do with something, just leave it.
So it's kind of a deviation for the new year. Everything that has scared you and marked you the last year, let it all go. Learn from it and let it go.
