I've been working on large paintings this week and have missed painting the little guys. So, today's post was fun to do. It's the second in a series featuring this vintage clear glass plate. I mentioned to my friend, Judy, who is a writer how good it feels to complete a painting a day and how frustrating larger paintings are that can take weeks or months to complete. She equated it to poetry and prose. Poems can be written in a short time, prose can take years. At any rate, I will shoot for 3 dailies a week. I enjoyed seeing the large painting that Frank Gardner completed. It was one of those that was hanging around waiting to be finished. Some unfinished paintings just need to be ignored. I am so excited to start a painting. Half way through I'm often discouraged or wondering "what was I thinking?" But, I have learned it is at just this stage that I must keep going, it takes what it takes, whether layering, scaping, glazing, scumbling, etc. Funny, that it usually doesn't need much more to bring it to a finish. Weird business we are in!
