With school starting in exactly one week, I am trying to keep everything together! This means integrating painting into a life of planning and paper work. With that said I made a some changes to two paintings yesterday. I have made small changes to both of the above and painted a tiny 5"x7" self-portrait.  I promised myself I would post tonight so those shifts will have to wait for another day.

Sometimes I feel like I am going in circles, or more accurately painting the same painting to repaint it again...and with that, this image is the latest in the ole' backyard drama.

for those of you who don't remember, this a brief history of this crazy painting



In other news the big painting is still moving along. At this point it's just about small steps to make everything feel right. I say that in the hopes that moving my mother's arm will be the last major shift to take place.
