Tulips with Green Apples

I'm feeling very comfortable in the 5 x 7" format lately, whereas last month, 9 x 12" felt just right. I don't think this has any deeper significance, it's just one of those intriguing things about being an artist. Speaking of pondering the concept of being an artist, I read a short story last night by A.S. Byatt on the subject that really blew me away. It's called "Art Work," part of her collection entitled The Matisse Stories. One of the characters is a still life painter, and her descriptions of his paintings, and of his mentality while creating them are amazingly insightful, and right. I really can't recommend this author highly enough.
