This painting has been waiting to be finished since its inception in St. Louis in 2004. As time has passed, it has become so huge in my mind that I will never be skilled enough to complete it. So daunting! But now it must be finished by next week for a big show opening in Memphis. I have waited so long for this opportunity, and now that it's here I am so nervous. Procrastination is my companion ---- I need more paint, I need better reference photos, what style should I use for the final bit of lettering, on and on. More avoidance-- writing this blog, creating a new piece for an old friend, trying out for the design team of The Stamping Studio, designing more stamps for them...on and on. So now, after whining, and procrastinating, I am going to paint! I will put up the pictures when it is done!
