Hi all, Finished at last – for better or worse…been ill, hence my absence and the time it has taken to finish the piece…a bit jaded with it to be honest…have been staring at it and unable to finish it for so long that I suspect, now that it’s done and dusted I’m just glad to see the back of it…Rory.

    I know the feeling.

  • Thanks for the empathy Cahl…the feeling passes of course but I doubt I’ll ever be happy with anything I paint…a good thing in itself…once we start producing work we are satisfied with, then it’s time to stop because there’s then no more growth…

    Wow, there really is a lot to see here! It took a long time to make, OK, but looking at it one can immediately see exactly where that time went.

  • Thank you for your, “Wow…” Carson…I’m not normally so slow…I was fearful that I’d fumble badly with this piece…so many interruptions and stretches of time between painting sessions; lost the fire…somehow I wonder if there isn’t TOO much going on…ah well, there’s always the next one…two et al…thanks again…
