I am starting on another adventure now, it's time for some stretching. I have chosen these black pansies because the forms are simple and the apartment complex around the corner from me has a fresh supply every day. I want to reduce detail; to have more tension in the composition; to use the paint in a more fluid manner; to go somewhere I haven't been yet. The best way to do it as far as I can tell is to use the same form over and over and make happen in the second painting what I couldn't make happen in the first, and on and on.
