Well it’s a half past four and I’m shiftin’ gears

I’ve come to the realization that the original Painting One is not going to get done this week. It’s too big, and I started too late in the week, due to a travel week and a bit of laziness on my part. So, it is going to be finished next week as Painting Two. But…I am still going to finish a painting this week. The new Painting One is something I’m going to knock out in the next day. I worked on the idea tonight. I’ll be working on a smaller canvas, and there’s not a lot of detail. But I think it’s going to be a nice piece. It’s kind of mysterious and dark. A little more “me” I think. This is what happens when I am working on a piece I’m not totally sold on. It’s not that I don’t like the Cripple Creek painting, but it’s just not inspiring me right now. I’ve got a feeling this might happen a lot, but it’s all a part of the process.
