Trying to get the pieces of this subject to form a whole, as the way pieces of a puzzle fit together, was the thought in my mind as I painted this today.  It made me concentrate on seeing the value and color shapes and to be aware of how the modeling affected that whole idea.  It was fun to do!  I'm looking forward to working more like this.  What is funny thinking about it, though, is that that idea wouldn't even have crossed my mind a couple of years ago, maybe even a year ago.  It's one of those things that when you see it in another painting, it attracts you, but you can't even quite name it.  It feels good to realize that we constantly learn to see more and more.
