The overworked painting is familiar to many painters.
If you're committed to your practice, it is likely that you'll meet this beast yourself.
My question is: knowing that I've already gone too far, is there a way to return to the simplicity and wonder that once was?
I'm going with a loud yes.
Perhaps I needed the complexity to lead me back to the elementary.
I'm where I'm supposed to be.
The challenge is to radiate the feeling that ignited this painting.
It's that simple, pun intended.
