I’m not focusing enough on what I’m doing and its leading to a mess of strokes.

I’ve learned over the years that a painting turns out best when each stroke has some thought behind it. I’m not saying that every stroke has to be carefully deliberated and agonized over but I do have to guard against careless placement and mindless painting. Unfortunately this session was not full of careful, thoughtful work. I’ll have a lot to fix if I keep going this way. Good thing I do these posts daily, I’m able to look at my progress, assess and adjust before getting to far down an incorrect path.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
