So Close I Can Taste it!
I tried working on this piece a few times, got frustrated and put it aside MANY times. It just wasn't "gelling" with me. It was like I had this mental block and couldn't get past it to finish this piece. But, it needed to be done. I have been painting small pieces lately and had a request from a gallery, who is showing my work, to send them some large paintings. I figured this would be a good time to finish this and FINALLY get it off my plate. I needed to move on.
I am happy to say that I have finally made some progress! I decided that it would be done this week and I think it may be done today. I just had to force myself to finish it. I worked on bits of it in between other paintings and yesterday, having no other paintings to distract me, I really focused on it. My mental block seems to be gone. I can't say that it's my favorite painting but it has some merit. It will be a nice one when finished, but more importantly, IT WILL BE DONE!
