Patrick: Shelf Finished

I finished the large shelf on the top left today. All the parts and pieces are starting to come together.

My energy is definitely waning on this painting. I’ve learned that months on the same painting is very difficult to do.

What went well?

I finished the large white shelf full of objects.

What didn’t go so well?

I’m losing my motivation and energy for this painting. I try not to focus on the whole of the painting and set intentions daily for finishing small parts and that helps a lot.

What did I learn?

The next painting I do hopefully is smaller. But this will be dependent on what the subject requires.
