Some paintings take forever BUT

it's worth it

oil on wood and resin
It's taken several months to finally finish this little still life painting. You can see how it started out here. Doing the sketchbook didn't take too long, and the dog wasn't too bad, but getting the sense of carved wood was a joyful challenge. Had to make sure the paint was thoroughly dry before pouring epoxy resin (how to here) on it.

Oh my! Must be some very important people who have the bestest taste and who are the smartest people to know what is appropriate and what is tasteful! My God I thought I was the Empress of all the Universe...for I truly am blessed with the best eye for what is good! Can I get the job when they retire? How much does it pay?
