After finally getting the art room into decent shape where I can walk around and find things, I’m now trying to finish some unresolved paintings. I’ve worked and worked this painting (like most every one I have), but–surprise!–suddenly I began to like it today. I put a coat of white gesso over most of it and cut into it with my favorite brushes–which aren’t really brushes but vinyl-tipped painting sticks. It started to get away from me again when I started working on the two eye-like spots, but I forced myself to stop. My OCD tendencies aren’t easy to control sometimes.
