I'm still struggling to get this current project done. It has hampered my ability to paint freely because of the time constraints. The timing of this project was unfortunate, because my schedule had changed and I got very busy. Add to the fact that I haven't done a commission in a very long time and, well... maybe the expression of angst in this attempt is a reflection of my own in getting this finished. It was supposed to be a smile. Oh, and not to mention I thought I had it nailed down awhile ago and had to completely retool. I keep coming back to certain images no matter how I try.
