This has been a really fun challenge, as I got to revisit paintings I haven't seen in years. It's like seeing old friends. I also got to see how I've changed over the years, and it is evident how restless I get with one style or another. I still feel schizophrenic: on one hand, I would love to be able to paint with perfectly invisible brushstrokes like a Dutch master; on the other hand, I love thickly textured, multi-media paintings with collage and mosaic elements. I vacillate between realism and cartoonishness. What am I doing???
