This is a study in which I reconsider how I painted the first version. There is no way around change if we are growing in our painting journey. Our tastes and what excites us about painting is constantly evolving. I think it's a mistake to attempt to "nail down" a particular style. What we learn always leads to new discoveries about what could be. Here, I am indulging a direction that I find exciting. The fun-factor in this painting was off the charts. I'll be trying to learn and expand more of the possibilities.
