Scrolling through the photos stored on my desktop, I came across these: all photos of paintings done in Carolyn's class. These are all on half sheets (15x22), except the bottles, which is a full sheet (22x30).
These really make me miss that group of painters, who inspired me to commit to more complex and larger paintings, something I never do at home or on my own.
But looking at these also renews my belief in the possibility of growth, that I can improve my painting. Maybe going to New Mexico provoked this reevaluation, or recommitment.
