Wow, Sunday night already? Good grief!
I spent much of the weekend in bay area, which was a nice change of scenery. I don't mind visiting cities but I could not handle living in one!
After getting home this afternoon I did a bunch of work on the chicken painting, and was hating it more and more with every brush stroke and finally decided that my best bet was to start over. I'd already changed the background color twice, and still wasn't satisfied with it, and the bird looked funky. It was supposed to be done by tomorrow but I think it's preferable to be a little late with GOOD art than to be on time with something that I feel is poorly done. I think I'm just too tired today to be too artistic. So.. I put three coats of gesso over the painting and when that's dry I'll start it again...differently. I'm not crazy about starting over but it's not a huge painting so it's not a crisis. I guess I'm still sort of in the experimental stages with painting, particularly when it comes to new subject matter!
Did I mention I'm tired? Zzzzzzzz.
