6 X 8
Oil on board
6 x 8"

I think I'm getting the hang of this now. I've got 4 dailies going—which is why I didn't post yesterday. And little by little, I'm beginning to see the importance of working in layers. I knew it was smart and I certainly admired the artists who work that way, but I'm so stubborn I didn't want to change my process, which has been a loose version of wet on wet. Silly me. And I couldn't figure out why my work always looked so sloppy! Um...duh!

This was started a long time ago when I thought it was possible to finish a linen piece in one day. I'd abandoned it. But it was at a stage that made it perfect to finish in one day! Anyway, this is still not up to snuff for me. I don't know what kind of standard the idiot voice is holding me up to, but I can only get better by continuing to work. And work I will.
