One of the joys of being an artist is being able to visibly see change. It feels like a good period right now.  Carmel Gardens was an unresolved painting that sat in my studio for over a year. One day parts of it were cropped from view by stacks of other paintings — and there was the painting that it was meant to be. I unstretched it, and restretched it into its newer, smaller, better composition.

The markets are companion pieces, although one of the companions sold, so they are separated.
