Of course, I still have many paintings that haven't flown the coop. An artist needs a "body of work" to hang in an art show, which means 40-50 finished and framed paintings. When I started out this seemed like an insurmountable task but, with many thanks to my wonderful instructors, I paint faster and with much more accuracy and have paintings galore!
Only 2 weeks into 2016 I have 3 more finished paintings and 2 commissions well under way. My resolution is to remain committed in the pursuit of becoming a better painter!
