I’ve decided to start painting daily and I hope to record my progress in this blog. Right now I’m working on a series of stylistic “big eyed girls”, in the traditon of Big Eye art. Usually working without a model, I paint one portrait a day, and endeavor to finish that picture by the end of the day. The deadline helps me overcome my perfectionism and my tendency to grow despondent and give up when I feel my painting has turned into a dud. This way, dud or not, I press on to the finish of the painting — no starting over! — and sometimes the results suprise and please me.
