Small again

This one is back to a 5x7 size.   Painting like this is a lesson in not only loosening up my hands but loosening up my expectations. They never turn out like I expect but that's really the fun of it. Robert Burridge writes down his goals for each piece in his sketchbook. That's a pretty good tip if you ask me! Now I just need to get myself to do it!

This is so beautiful, love all your vases! But what could the goal for a painting be, except repeated every time: pretty pretty pretty?! :-)
