Last night I stayed up way too late to finish this painting:
The time painting went by very fast and before I knew it, it was past midnight. Needless to say I am cranky and tired but that has been balanced by being pleased that this painting is complete and that it turned out ok. It was really a labor of love as I found myself enjoying the painting process. It took a bit longer then it should have to complete thanks to some, ahem, extended drying times but in the end it all worked out. I am going to GamVar the painting in a week or two and until then I will ponder frame options.
Tonight I am going to begin work on two paintings at the same time. I hope to keep both progressing in tandem as a way of always giving myself something ready to work on. Lets see how it goes!
