It took me a while to get into painting today, but I think I eventually found my zone again. It didn’t come easily but I finally decided to quit forcing some other things in favor of today’s painting, which came easily and I enjoyed.

I think I’m liking the palette knife more than the brush. Every time I get frustrated I turn to it, and it almost never lets me down.
