A couple weeks ago I posted a slideshow of a painting that was still in the works. Since it is now completed, I thought I’d give you all the satisfaction of seeing it through to the end. I find it fascinating to see all the stages of development and where I get stuck and how I punch through. Never, never, ever ends up where I think it will end.

I love that aspect of the painting process where I start off fine and dandy and then I end up on a path that doesn’t feel true to me, but I just keep on going anyway and then when my mind catches up to my heart I make a big mess so I can change course and get back on track. Ah, art/life metaphors, don’t you just love em?
