After feverish brushstrokes hurriedly applied to the canvas begin to accumulate into the promise of a great painting, the inevitable moment of apprehension about the outcome falls over the canvas like mud on a windshield. The mass of brilliant strokes that looked so promising moments or days earlier suddenly reveal new directions that hadn't been considered when the inspiration burned hotly. Resolving newly created design situations take over from the fun of fluid responses to sparkling inspiration.
Part of the fun of doing any artwork is the challenges that occur along the way. The balancing of going left or right, deeper or lighter, warmer or cooler plays itself out in each original stroke, dictating what should come next or what should not have happened at all. As always those decisions will find their solutions in the maelstrom of choices each of us as artists deal with.
