This morning I am very conflicted. I need to paint but I don’t want to. I’m considering stopping work on the painting presently on my easel because I’ve been thinking about the next painting. I have a photograph of my daughter’s apartment green space and I want to paint it. I thought I’d take one last look at the present portrait and then I’m done with it. I started to check measurements with a divider and low and behold the eyes are way to far apart. I was sure I checked that before but apparently not.

So, it’s been a couple of days and the portrait is suddenly starting to look better and I’m seeing other things that need work so I’m not ready to give up on it yet.
