Every week I spend some time looking at art books. Its a wonderful way to get inspired. I have a list of favorites and I love to visit the classics. However, in this post, I would like to tell you how periodically, I revisit my own art. It typically occurs while wax is heated and I have some waiting time. I unwrap a piece, a piece that I was planning to revisit, and just stare at it for a while. I hang it in my studio and sit. And stare. And stare some more. Then I stare some more…
