For those of you who feel you may have seen this painting before, you are correct!  But just as each day is a little different in Bill Murray’s surreal life in the movie Groundhog Day, such is my fate as I work slowly, surely day after day on the same image, yet never is it the same.  Some days it feels like a wonderful painting, others like a disaster.  The most important lesson here is to keep moving forward.

Ambitious paintings require a tremendous amount of commitment and patience. I Apply paint to the areas I know, and take leaps of faith in those I do not. All the while in the back of my mind are words of wisdom from Dori… 

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!

Eventually I will get there…where ever that may be.
