Painting a Bob

It occurred to me today how frustrating my painting process is. But I think that's part of what I like.  When I first start a painting, I get extremely annoyed because I can't seem to "see" the finished project yet.  I start to question my talent and wonder if I should just give up, sell my paints and move on. Yes, I'm that dramatic.

But then, I persevere. I take a break and come back to the painting and just tell myself to complete it, even if it's crap.  But sometime in the third day, I start to "see" what I was hoping to see in the first place and I get excited to finish it.   As weird as it sounds, I think I enjoy that high I get after the low. 

Here's the latest painting.  I'm entering him in my first group show next week.

He's available as a print at my Society6 page
