Happy...for more than one reason

I had this painting sitting in a corner for awhile. When I first started it, I liked the colors so much that I didn't know what to do next. Everything seemed interesting, so I didn't want to cover anything up. Classic.

When I finally got sick of looking at it and decided to work on it again. "That's just how I roll."

Anyway, as I was painting, not only was I happy with how it was turning out, but I realized 2 other things:

I am so much better at mixing colors now. Not only it takes me less time (and paint!) to get the shade I want, but I'm also more comfortable doing it. Sometimes I put the paint straight from the tube on the brush and mix it directly on the canvas.
I'm holding my brush differently. I feel more at ease now, like I have my own way to hold the brush.

That might sound like small details, but it's not. It was somewhat of an "a-ha" moment for me.
