It took a very long time to get into this painting. A very long time. I think I started this almost 2 years ago…
I think it takes me so long because these pieces have to go through an ugly phase.
But if I let things percolate long enough (2 years?? come on!), and push through the blah stage, I get back in the groove and usually can get it done.
And here it is finished and mounted. Yes, I did date this 2012 because that was when I took this photo and started the piece.
At this rate, I should have my next piece done by 2016.
