Work in a Series

“It’s beneficial to work in series because your brain starts thinking in a certain way, and you begin to see different ways to tackle the same old subject,” says Bev Jozwiak. “One idea leads to another, and you never know where that train of thought will take you. I paint a lot of different subjects, everything from ballet dancers to kids playing in the rain, and everything in between. But I do stay with a subject until I find myself on rote, or just flat running out of ideas — most of the time revisiting the same subject when new ideas start to flow again.”
