Around the house this week I feel like I've been finishing up projects that got left
by the wayside before the summer began.
One in particular is this picture- a large painting I have been struggling with for months.
Here is a collage of all the transformations it has gone through. (whew!)
It has always been a painting about an underwater scene.
It was the kind of work that I never felt quite comfortable with- there were always parts I really liked but looking at it as a whole, it never felt complete.
Eventually I painted over the whole thing and turned it into a portrait I've named - the swimmer.
Which is loosely based on this photo I took a couple years ago
I think I'm still digesting all that I've learned from this process, and it is the first
really large painting I've done, which is probably where the real discomfort came from
(All that space Yikes!)
It was a struggle well worth all the effort that went into it. :)
