A deadline can rattle you, or spur you on. Actually, it probably does both~ back and forth, over and over.
So, as I keep adding layers of paint and medium (and wait for them to dry), here’s a couple more footprints on the patio pics:
OK, I’m a bit rattled . . . better get back to my quilt. Cross your fingers for me.
Oh, and I did another “underpainting” (I only call the ones that “turn out” actual paintings). You might wonder why I do so many of these. I have a philosophy that, like photography, it takes a hundred tries to get a really good one. In the meantime, you keep practicing and honing your skills. Eventually, it may only take 10 to get a really good one.
