This has been hanging around my studio since 2015. I drew it in and couldn't bring myself to paint it because I thought it was too hard. Can't say how many times it was on the easel and never had one spot of paint applied. So glad it's finished. I'm happy with it.
Painting around others seems to be very good for me. I'm challenging myself to try different things. This week I really went out on a limb. More to follow on that. My advice is, if you're stuck, find a painting group. (Or writing or photography or woodworking, whatever, group)
