I like the unplanned way paint accumulates on the blotter rags and I keep looking at this one.

And guess what? After a long hiatus I am painting on panel again. (!!!) Over the years while following other pursuits I haven't had time (or made time) for it. Returning to this kind of serious painting is like finding my self again or something I thought I had misplaced.

And just perhaps March's trend of being creatively straining has been broken.
