Trying to get back into painting daily again...I always feel like I overwork paintings. My process is always to be super spontaneous for most of it and then go back and refine it, and I don't think it's really working for me anymore. Watercolor is a tough medium for my tendency of work-stop-work-stop-work, but it's my favorite medium, so I'm determined to make it work.

But anybody can do stuff they love...they just have to remember they don't have to be boring and stuffy for the rest of their lives.
