Sometimes art needs to age in your sketchbook for a few years for you to appreciate what you were trying to see and express. This is a tiny preliminary that I did back almost 8 years ago. I have a version of it on a large canvas that I have carried around for the same length of time. I have gone back to it and changed it as I grew with the painting.
It's like my child.
I've been raising it.
I've never given up on it.
I always new it could be special.
It's time to revisit it again, with new respect for my initial feelings about the subject.
