    Mom and dad are both artists. Anything less would be a disappointment.

    I often stall a painting I put it aside. If i don't grind it out later, i paint over it.

    I've started playing around with modern art. Just for a break. Like my avi.

    You are not a failure, take heart that there are so many of the rest of us who wish we had your talent. Keep at it, and don't worry about what a few oafs may think.

    Yippee ! I am back. I have been painting for two days and I am getting somewhere at last. I have loosened up my style, and I am not trying to paint pictures too realistically. With the consequence I am making progress.

    I am currently painting on a very old picture I gave up on years ago and it is looking far better after only two days work. I will post a picture of it when its finished. Watch this space.

    Thanks, I may go back to the sunflower picture next year when it gets warmer. The reason being it is six feet wide and there is not enough room in my bedroom. I only heat the bedroom and I do not want to pay money to heat another room, for one thing I would have to buy another heater. So I can only work in the bedroom in winter
    I am currently working on a smaller picture, and will probably finish it in a week or two when I will post a photo.

    Well, it looks like crap. The actual painting does not look that bad. I took it at night and my digital camera used flash. I think I will get better results taking a pic with my film camera, and scanning it..

    Of course an unfinished work looks just that....unfinished.

    I have no doubt it will be beautiful when it's complete.

    If it looked as bad in real life as it does in the photo I would not bother to finish it, but its better than it appears above. The center subject of the figure rising up is completely out of focus in the photo.
