Choosing a Subject to Paint

When I first began painting, I tried hard to find interesting subjects.  I started out by painting scenes from my travels.  Then I painted imagined scenarios using old family photos as references.  They were very nice.  I sold a lot of those paintings, and I still like most of them.  But the longer I practice art, the more I realize that the simplest things can be the subject of interesting paintings.  Here is an unusual perspective on breakfast:  a cup of coffee and an orange.
