There is no way around it. The only way I am going to save this painting (Untitled-10·20·2013), i.e. make it right, is to destroy the woman and then resurrect her. It is offal the amount of time I have spent on this dead end. But it has taught me the wrongness that is me trying to make the woman work correctly. She was wrong from the very beginning, yet I carried that legacy along. At last I know the truth, or at least I know the lie that she is. Today she will be gone and tomorrow please come back and check here for her replacement. Before I show you the despicable woman as she exists now, let me show you a better drawing of a woman. This drawing was made yesterday before I wasted my time on the woman in the painting. I thought of the drawing as a study for the painting, as preparation for me to re-enter the painting and make the woman in the painting right. The drawing succeeded, then I went back into the painting, bolstered by the success of the drawing, and consequently failed.
