Sometimes I worry that I have let my technical skills slip. What if my fondness for realism rekindles? Could I still produce what I might see before me? I don't know. But I love how kinetic my paintings have become. I enjoy the experience more, I think, than I used to. For now, I will embrace the abstract and unusual features that develop with my brush, and pore over the earthly details exposed by my camera.
