At the moment, I have three partially done paintings and one blank canvas with a planned design being worked on. I just returned to one of my mermaid ("Undersea Adventures") paintings that I've been staring at for months because a tail just wasn't right. Last night, after a grueling week and a very long Friday complete with broken car air conditioner in 90+ degree weather, I watched a few episodes of Discovery's Shark Week, and my light was on. Now I'm back in the studio working on it and feeling as if my hands are suddenly untied. It's an incredibly liberating feeling, like coming up out of water to breathe air.
Since the butterfly painting is finished, I can now share some of the time progression it went through. Thanks for reading.
