Day 3: Mocha

30 Paintings in 30 Days
Day 3

8" x 10"
Oil on Canvas Board

Is is terrible for an artist to say that they have impressed themselves?? Probably. But at least it's not because of  "the innate beauty of the piece" or because of some "masterful composition created by the placement of" whatever. I don't even know if any of those apply. But what I am impressed about is how I've been able to loosen up and not feel like the work is incomplete.

Even a month ago I would have angsted over this piece for another 5 or 6 hours, blending and glazing and scumbling.

This is why every artist should experiment.
