I have been committed …

I am fully committed to this painting. The painting that never ends would be how I describe my current project. I have been working on it for about 7 weeks and still not finished. Fortunately that’s okay because I have no end date. I’ll work on it until it’s done.

My drawing activities have been set aside while I push forward to finish this abomination. Over the past few weeks I have been whining about how difficult the process has been. I have made peace with my work and now it’s just a matter of labour and technique (OK fine, … still room for some creative thought).

I have included some details of what I did during the week. (click on the images for a larger view).

This has been a good week of painting. I sense the end is near and no, I’m not talking about the end of the world — yeesh! Although if you spend all of your time reading certain blogs you might think so — anyway I’m off topic. How can I be off topic when I can choose to edit anything I write. I’m just rambling.

Although the progress was good this week I really don’t have much to say, thus I choose this moment to babble away. And yes I am committed — to this abomination!

I’m in a love/hate relationship with my painting – as usual!
