Pulling up the past

Jodi Creager at Creager Studios got me to thinking about revisiting my past. Jodi said...
I look at 'older' work as a kick start on the always feeds my artistic direction...just the battery cables I need to jump start my drive...

I loved that, it resonated. Got me to thinking, I need a little jump start.
So I pulled out one of my paintings from 1972, yes 1972! I started oil painting in 1966, I was 10. I like the colors.
What was I thinking here?? Another one of those... "what the hell is that?" I am sure I made up some artsy- fartsy story about why I did it though. About seeing with my nose because I was blinded by the colors and the evolution of the chrysalis, and about how the yellow in my skin is the bile in my mind. Sometimes art is such a crock. After all I was 15 and wanted so badly to be an artist, to fit in with the cool kids.
Probably dreamt this up at night!
Just do it!

I have no idea.
Jodi, some people should just leave the past right where it is. LOL!!!
