Just wanted to gripe a bit…the three phases I hate the most in a painting:

1) The beginning: getting the drawing down on the canvas…painstaking, and you know you’re going to have to fix something soon or later when you’re painting
2) The middle: when you’re past the fun “everything’s coming together” phase, and you feel like you have a million years to go
3) The end: when there seem to be a thousand tiny details you could fine-tune, but you have to finish it already

 Over and out.
