“Should” 6×6, oil on canvas, $125

Today’s painting is a smaller version of day 14. I’m feeling those should’s start to creep up on me–  you should be trying new things. You should make every painting completely new and different and exciting every day. 

But I’ve known “should” for so long now, I finally know how to handle him. I just say hey, a familiar wave of my hand, and then go on my merry little way.
