I wanted to move away from fruits and vegetables for a while so I did this needle, thread and button painting.

I think I am slowly able to tolerate some brushstrokes showing. It used to be that I’d completely blend away all traces of the brush because if any was showing, it just didn’t feel “finished”.

I love tightly rendered paintings, but I also love those which are brushy. There is a battle within me as I haven’t decided which style to pursue yet. Hopefully, as I continue this painting-a-day journey, I’ll be able to determine which style I am most happy with.
