Early work

One thing I love about painting is that you can constantly evolve what you’re doing, making new choices and learning new things about the process from one moment to the next. Given enough input, this evolution continues over decades. I find it fascinating, and very encouraging, to compare an artist’s early work with later works, and see their progression. It makes me wonder what my paintings might look like in the future, if I work hard and stick at it.

Some of these comparisons are twenty years apart, others only a few years.
