The above painting is a WORK IN PROGRESS. It feels like it might be a perpetual one. As a new painter I know it will take me LONGER than an professional artist and I know I should be patient. So the old 4X4 driving instructions of : As fast as possible as slow as necessary. - seems appropriate. I spent a majority of the time stressing that I was going to run out of time before the children returned. I spent the other bit of time trying to figure out how, if possible, to make this a "painterly" picture instead of the sad tight things I've made before. So it became one of those times where nothing was working.
