Sometimes wielding the brush with high energy is the only way to come out of a slump. Covering the canvas with a sense of urgency helps me to get past the barrier of inertia after a period of not painting.
Modernity is done with a large brush and knife. The dominant color is black which I don't use a lot but in this case it just seemed right.
