It's funny how ideas keep coming back in new forms. I had an idea for this rough come to me about a week ago, painted it in about 2 hours, then realized that I had sketched a similar idea about 10 years ago. I went through my files and found the original sketch, which is different in the details, but very similar in structure and mood. Never had a chance to paint it though. So I that image needed to come out of my brain, and if it wasn't going to be realized 10 years ago, the same basic structure was going to reappear 10 years later in a different image.
