Working slowly every day on this painting I’m getting closer to completion. I’m not sure why I decided to go into detail with this painting but it is very rewarding.

I know the importance of the first 2 hours or so of a figure painting and at the beginning of this month I wanted to focus on that. But, I must say there is something very rewarding when I finish even part of the figure. I feel accomplished.

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."
