As a painter, I spend a lot of time just experimenting and learning. Sometimes these experiments get refined into a finished painting. Other times during these painting sessions I end up with something a little rough but with a natural charm that I like enough to leave as is. Sometimes these are studies for a larger painting, or sometimes I’m working out an idea or learning something new. I love all of these studies and they are all so valuable to me (or, and I have learned so much from them), but over the years they’ve stacked up!
