out of the woods
I recognized myself as an artist and things started shifting. I don't always identify a change in myself until after that moment has already passed by. When I look back throughout my journey I can pinpoint places and times that are markedly different. That's when I tell myself, "Look what you did there--that was when things changed for you." So looking back I realize that it was these canvases that began to shape the shift in my art. Becoming more refined, yet still experimenting with new materials.
