Constant change in the Month of change

Quite frequently I am a slow painter.  It's not that I can't go fast,
it's that some paintings take a lot of thought and deliberation.
And I could no more explain to you which paintings require that
focus, or why, than I could explain astrophysics.  The process
remains a mystery to me.

This painting is one of those slow babies, and it is changing minute
by minute.  It is like a complicated recipe that you have to move from
stovetop, to microwave, to oven, to the refrigerator.  So here we are
today in this iteration, and I can confidently expect more changes
tomorrow.  Because I will go to sleep and dream, and new answers
will come flying into my brain.  For now.  This is it.  And I am
enjoying the dance.

Have an enjoying the dance of change day.
