Coming Of Age In The Year 2018, © 2019, work in progress (click on image for larger view)
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.

Absurd Drying Time
There's another show coming up that I want to enter this one in, but the work I had planned on it for today isn't possible. I used Indigo for the darker areas, and colorwise, it's working out very well. What's not working is the fact that it takes over a week to dry! The last time I painted it was the 22nd, and here it is the 31st! There are some places where I want to overpaint the indigo with a light blue, and it's just mixing and smearing around instead. Bah. Now I have to wait another few days, at least...
