I thought I would finish this lickety split and have the beginnings of something else to post, but alas, that was not to be.    This painting took longer than I thought to complete proving to me once again that I am soooo not a natural talent.   I find this to be hard work.   But enjoyable hard work most of the time.   Except for today when I completed this and started a landscape which, after I started it, proceeded to stare at it for a 1/2 hour and think WTF?  Where do I go with this now?   So I put it away and will look at it another time, perhaps when I am more inspired and less hot.  It’s 87 with 100 billion percent humidity.   Ugh.    The image size of this painting is approximately 13″ x 161/2″
