Find the energy in the paint

In looking over the last two or three pieces that I have completed, I have noticed that I have become tentative using the oil paints. Some earlier paintings of mine were rich in the synergy of the paint and the brushwork. Last night while working on a painting of a deep pink and white variegated rose, I reminded myself, maybe even ordered myself to get back to what is me. Get back to the energy, the expressiveness of the oil paints. After a few hours of working in this mindset, I was much happier with my results. So going forward I will continue to work on remaining true to me.
