Yesterday my dear friend who comes to see my work
before I hand it in, or send it off, came over and
told me she liked all three paintings. I made some of
the changes we talked over while she was here, and took
notes on what I might think about changing. It takes a very
delicate sensibility to be able to coach an artist
wavering on the edge of high alert into the land of
reason, and she has that ability big time.
So today I show you the "almost" final version of this
one, and will let you glimpse the other two before they're
off in their final form. My deadline has been extended
until Monday for this show, so you know that means I
may continue "tweaking" this or that, because I work
in acrylic and the paint will be dry.
I pulled back a bit from the real pixelation theme because
the woman in the painting looked too much like she had
chicken pox -- not a good look. So this is the result.
I am super tired today. I teach almost before dawn, so
it's time for a nap.
