Chugging along on this one. Painting time was cut short by a couple of spur-of-the-moment errand trips. The top part is blank yet because I’m still mulling things over. Some artists plan paintings out in entirety before ever picking up a brush, doing intricate, detailed drawings. I’ve never done that. Hell — I was a music major. But then I read how most novelists start writing, not knowing how their story will end. A comfort, that. Usually I’ll wake up in the middle of the night, “seeing” a solution.
