I constantly struggle with what to paint.  Sometimes I have endless ideas, other times, no ideas.  I do often paint the same thing several times in different sizes.  A lot of paintings intended to be framed end up being studies, but  I have always believed that you learn something from every painting and never consider even a failure to be a waste of time. 
Feel free to use any of these photos.  I still see things I would do differently in this one so I might do another one. 

This shows the major stages of a painting, starting with big shapes, then refining as you go along.
