Repetition and Growth
Some times, repetition may be a key to learning and growth.
These paintings "The Ocean Talk" and "The Sky is not the limit' are done on 18 by 24 inch canvas in oil. I had done similar ones about an year ago, in acrylic.The visit to Muir Forest and Point Lobos, California is close to my heart and a pleasure to paint, so I thought of trying out the same again, this time in oil.
I think that when you re do a work after a long gap, it is interesting to see if the brain decides to go for a new approach, overcomes the obstacles faced previously or just follow what had been done in the older version..a sort of self analysis of growth or stagnancy!
Both these paintings are presently part of the "Nature" show at the Linus Gallery, Pasadena, California
