I started it when I was up in Oxford on the Eastern Shore, and I had it about 90% done. I didn't finish it on site, and it has been sitting in my studio for months. So today, I decided to do that last 10% so that I could sign it and get it ready to frame.
As an artist, if you put a painting aside, you can lose the momentum that you had, and it makes it more difficult to finish. I have about 5 of these unfinished pieces. So each day, I will pick one up and work on it. This is the first of the lot that I focused on and finished.
I have a few more to go, and I will show them to you as I finish. Finishing these paintings also helps to clean up my studio. When you have a bunch of unfinished paintings sitting around, it takes up room, and it's also like having a cloud hanging over your head. So there is one less cloud in the sky today. 4 more to go!
