Oh my, Day 3 you were interesting.
Again I pulled out a piece that had been sitting in the "in progress" cubby shelf for nearly a year:
Day 3 starting point
I liked the blue figure on the right-hand side, but then I turned it around and saw a woman looking out into the distance...

Day 3 end result, I preferred the interim state above
Faces intimidate me when they ask to be brought to life. Continuing on this piece will be a major challenge for me, I'm afraid of screwing it up even more.
BUT, one of the first painting workshops I took in 2008 was called Painting as a Process and that process involves persisting through resistance, risking what's there to create something even better.
A metaphor for life perhaps?
I'll let you be the judge. I'm off to meet one of my artistic challenges and see if I can shape Day 3's work in progress into something that pleases me.
Tune in tomorrow to see if I actually go through with it.
