It is easy to get lost in the studio painting and forget to come up for air, especially when asked to do something totally new as the featured artist for a gallery exhibit. While I loved working on a totally new grouping, I left several pieces at different stages of completion and learned that it is very hard to find the rhythm of those pieces again. Another lesson learned for the future. I will always weigh out the advantages and disadvantages but now I have learned one more thing to consider. Like anything, every day offers a learning experience. Now to get back to gulls and windows and a little surrealism.
