After looking at this half finished painting for far too long in two different states the finishing touch appeared. I'm at a loss to figure out where the idea came from (there have been at least 12 failed ideas in the transitional area of this painting) but it's perfect and after a bit of work with some oil sticks and a heat gun this 24" monster will be complete. I'm contemplating some type of custom built float frame since it is only on 1/2" plywood...hmmm.
The blank cards were supposed to arrive today but there was some type of delay in the printing process so now they won't arrive until next week sometime (this is really unfortunate because patience is a virtue I do not possess). Impatience often leads to procrastination around here and as I've been blog hopping this week I was struck (like a bolt of lightening) by this image. It speaks to me in such a profound way and reminds me that my women with houses and boxes on their heads have bigger stories too....(i love that moment of connection when something speaks to you, don't you?)
