New and Brave

I am still working on my cloud painting, but while I am in between layers I thought I would start a new one This time I am painting over an old already complete painting. I have lots of old oil paintings which I have held onto for years, including ones I don't really love. I always meant to paint over them but somehow never had the guts. I have to say, though, I should have done it ages ago. It's such a liberating feeling. Plus I find it an interesting contrast between my old style and color palette to my newer stuff. It doesn't seem an extreme bravery to paint over something, but I think sometimes it really is. Letting go of the past and diving into some unknown that could be much better or much worse than what you started with. Let's hope it turns out to be much better.
