Take comfort. If you stick with it, it is going to happen. It is going to get done! Sometimes it becomes so confused as to confound. Stepping back and putting it out of sight helps, but in this painting, shown today, in its final state (#11), I did not need to do this. This painting worked its way toward completion seamlessly. It took just 11 days of painting. The painting is called "Painting-10292012", which means it was begun just over a month ago. I know the naming is awkward. I have to find a way to have it both ways, i.e. a title which refers to the painting's subject, and a date which helps me remember the painting's passage through time.
