I suppose every artist has a bucket list of what they’d like to paint someday. This painting was like getting two of those red stick Tetris pieces back to back and clearing out 8 rows’ worth of things I wanted to paint.
I finished this piece back in May. The total time was about 48 hours from start to completion. I was sorry to see it end. Really had fun with this one! Not once did I ever feel aggravated with it or want to chuck it into a dark corner.
Between then and now, I've been occupied with the world of commercial leases (something I have no prior experience with!) It really makes my head spin but I have to put up with it in order to move into a new teaching location. Hopefully I'll be back to painting something soon!
