It only took a few shifts at work to remember how much I like painting. I feel inspired by this piece again. I have put the pomegranates aside and after I got a good opaque layer of paint built up, I am ready to articulate the details. I had thought to put a crane in this piece, but it doesn't fit. It would cover up too much of the painting that already exists. Instead I think the crane will find a home in a future painting that I am planning.
There is still a lot of work to do. I am hoping that I could use some of my current pieces during a grad school interview, thus expanding my portfolio even further than the January 15th slide deadline allowed. Additionally there are so many ideas knocking around in my head right now, and I am anxious to produce it all. There is however only one speed in painting so I must be diligent.
