It's done! I put the last paint on a minute ago. This one went down kicking and screaming but as is most often the case when they are difficult, we end up liking them very much! At one point i was going to scrap it and start over. Now i am glad i did not do that. A teacher i once taught me that you can make something out of almost anything. If in the end you are still not satisfied you can cut it into strips and make really cool watercolor bookmarks. Hehe! I've not made any bookmarks yet but there are a few in the old folder that should be. I'm getting excited for the show. The paintings i've done are a lot different than the last showing. It is amazing to me to see where they go when one paints a lot!
Having a deadline is so good as it forces you to work when a lot of times you are wanting to do anything but paint. I think after the Opening i will have to find a new deadline. It will be difficult to start painting again i know but it is something i am determined to not let happen. We shall see. Now i have to finish the young girl i was working on and that will be it for now.
