Still working on this......



I am still working on this egg tempera and I frankly am about ready to scrap it! I just hate to give up, though, so I am going to try and finish it somhow or another!


It is wearing me down! You artists out there: do you ever start a painting and wish you hadn't?This one is it! First the panel I was painting on wouldn't hold the paint. Then I started it again on another panel that I had primed. The paint holds, but I haven't been pleased with the composition or the colors or the drawing I did before I began to paint. But I am stubborn so keep watching and I am going to finish the *#//!x#*/ thing! And that is about as strong a statement as I ever make!
