Art is a battle and I've been fighting with this painting for 8 months now. It's been through so many stages and changed quite radically... looking back at the photographs I should have left it alone around three months ago... but then again that would have been to easy. Is it finished? Well I didn't leave the studio with a cloud over my head feeling like a failure and for the first time this month I don't completely hate it. I think I will pretend it's finished for a while before destroying and repeating the whole process again.
