I’m not liking how the portrait is coming along so I keep going over what I did on the previous session. I need more patience as it will take time.

I’ve learned that when I’m having a tough time with a painting or drawing to no think about the whole painting but instead focus on a smaller part. It helps to focus and worry about less, or set  a goal to accomplish something small. As long as I am moving forward it is good no matter how small the steps.

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."
