Here's one that was 7 months in the making.
no i didnt paint on it that long but it feels like it.
this was started back in june on location and i meant to come back to that spot to finish it but for this reason, and that, didnt get back for several weeks. and guess what? the boat was gone, off the stanchions it was on, when they were painting her underside. good thing i had shot a photo of it, just in case.
this painting has stared at me in my studio everyday since june, screaming
"finish me!". like the item on your to-do list that never seems to get done, taunting you everyday, making you feel bad for procrastinating so long.
well,, finally yesterday i threw it on the easel, put the photo on the computer screen and finished it! man, i was so proud of myself for getting it done finally. really liked how it came out too. thats an added bonus.
in other news.... i've sent my blog for submission to the Daily Painters Gallery, the internets most highly publicized and popular "daily painter" websites with thousands of hits a day. its very hard to get into their group and they'll let me know in January if i get accepted. will be very good for me (the group will be featured on Oprah soon) and will give me a thousand times the exposure i'm getting now.
keeping my fingers crossed.
they require you to paint one painting daily, which i'm "almost" doing now. so that shouldnt be a problem.
more on what they tell me later.....
