These days my central problem is how to keep the freshness of the first sketchy layer. I love that looseness and yet the painting is just an idea then. Sometimes each subsequent layer seem to hammer more of the life out of the piece.

This piece is not done but pretty close to being done; still could go either way, fresh and alive or nailed to the perch…

  1. I relate to your struggle! You’re doing a beautiful job despite the “handicap”!
    To keep painting takes courage when one is not achieving the ideal. But beauty still shines through!
