This is a blog about painting: specifically, representational fine art, generally, using oil paint. I think a lot about what I'm doing, and those thoughts about subject matter, technique, influences, frustrations and delights all show up here. It's all about the journey.

Dealing With It
A couple of days ago I mentioned how tedious it is to work on the lettering on J.P. Licks; today I decided to tackle it. I'm making the letters larger than they need to be so I can cut them down to size with black outlines after the paint dries.
As you can see, the edges of the table need to be refined, too.
Eventually I'll work through the details of this painting, and finish the darn thing. It's been long enough.
