A Daily Meditation

Yesterday I started work on a big painting of Rosebud for the benefit show:

This is usually the part where I'm like 'Oh man, what have I gotten myself into?'

Then I made this drawing, to reference as I'm painting, and I stood back and thought 'Huh, maybe I should just hang this at the show. I kind of like it as-is.'

But then, of course, I reminded myself that I am, truly, dedicated to craftsmanship. And so begins a week of what I love about painting the most: the process.
