|My daughter snapped this shot of me at work|
So, after sketching some ideas over the past few days, I went forward with a study. I used to be too impatient to do a study - I always just wanted to go right in and do it. I'm finally willing to accept the fact that I'm never happy with the result when I do that - there's always something that doesn't sit right and I end up re-doing it (even if it's years later). At last, I'm content with doing the extra work to get a result that I'm happy with.

I've also decided that, now that this is a series, the "mother nature" idea isn't really sitting right with me. That may have worked for the first one, but seeing more than one representation, the sense of beauty and grace stands out more to me.
