There are always those days when any skill at art that I posses seems to be well out of my reach and frustration wins out. Tonight was such a night. But, one thing I leaned from this is how amazing the art of Andrew Wyeth really is. Tonight his ability with tempera, a medium very similar to gouache, seemed light years ahead of me and completely unreachable. I hope to learn more from tonight’s failure.

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."
