Journey through Painting

Sooo, I tend to start things and not always finished them. For instance, books, webinars, paintings. I am committed to finishing this painting that I started on Easter Sunday. I actually had the day off, what!? That's right, I didn't volunteer to teach yoga for Easter Sunday and it was amazing. I still woke up early, but I had a lazy morning, ate my maple peanut butter oatmeal and I decided to start painting. The one problem was my paints were really old, though they are oil paints, the lids were stuck shut. Solution? I put them lid side down in hot water; problem solved. Ok, next problem, Buddha, my cat, he loved the paints... Paints and cats don't mix. I solved that with some treats and a toy. Ok, it was time for me to get started, and I did. I finished the background of the image within a few hours before it was time to go to my parent's house for Easter dinner. The new problem, I haven't touched it since. Honestly, it does take about 4-7 days for the paint to dry. And I need it dry in order to move on to the next layer... But it's dry now. Here is the start of my painting. Comment on what you think. Let me know if you would like to be updated on this journey. If you do, it will give me accountability to actually finish!
