Why do artists paint the same thing over and over?

Why do artists paint the same thing over and over?

Sometimes people see my work and say ‘Oh, that’s so different to the piece I bought twenty years ago! I prefer your watercolours…’ Or ‘Wow, this is so similar to the piece I saw at such-and-such gallery five years ago…’ And then we have a conversation. I paint as healing, as meditation, as grounding and as expression. Sometimes I paint yellow skies with red flowers. Sometimes I paint dark and moody treed landscapes. Sometimes I paint a dog, or a galah hanging off the electric wires after a good soaking rain. I get lost in time when I paint. Often,...
