Patience is more than a virtue

A short blog tonight.  This is a detail of a large canvas I'm working on.
Her face still looks unfinished I know.  But it is finally becoming
what I wanted, with a look of both peace and loving beauty.

You can expect more tomorrow I hope, if I just keep working like you
all do.  Thank you for your constant inspiration. Soon it will be finished,
her face in full flower, and I can move on to the two other large paintings 
I want to complete by the end of March. 

It was a beautiful, sunny, turbulent, windy and cloudy day today.
March in Toronto in action.  What do I mean by the title.  Sometimes
patience is the best strategy.  Especially in art.

Have a loving the process day.
