Finished this one... finally.

I have decided that I hate painting hands. Yes. I will fix them one day. I also don't like the colours in this photo, I have to tweak them a bit to make them closer to the original, but this will do for now.

Oil paint on canvas. Think it is time to stop using oil... maybe move on to spray paint. :P

I see nothing wrong and I see everything right about this painting. We're so critical of ourselves, aren't we?  I'm reading a great book on creativity.  You might want to take a look at it.  Title: Kick-Ass Creativity.  Author: Mary Beth Maziarz.  I really really really really really like this!  Please don't try to dissuade me!

We all need inspiration.  I need a steady diet of it!  You might also like 2 books by Austin Kleon: Steal Like An Artist ... and ... Show Your Work.  One of my very favorites is a book by Jen Sincero: You Are A Badass.  Happy reading!
