Thinking about that...I went through some old sketches I did in art school that I used as thumbnails for my monotypes. I had a very different style then...but I see similarities that carry through. I also did a lot of research back then on other Artists to find out what types of lines, shapes and forms appealed to me.
It's time to do a little research again to see what kind of "new" mark I can make. There seem to be losts of mistakes, grumbling (mostly grumbling) and do-overs involved but hopefully it will all be worth it!
