tossed aside

I often paint a subject more than once. I try to capture a likeness of a subject. It's always just an impression of a part of what I see. There are so many ways to represent what is in front of me. I An artist must choose what to show and what to leave out of a composition. There are endless possibilities. I can finish a painting and feel there is more I missed than I captured. Painting something more than once allows more to be expressed. I have found that objects I've painted many times loose there attraction once I felt I captured them to my satisfaction.
