One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Texas Ranunculas
12x12, oil on panel
Yesterday's painting was just the worst. I scraped twice... or was it three times? Still no luck. Heavy sigh. So this one is from the archives. I like many things about it; the chest is described much more accurately and the turquoise color in the vase is a favorite. The perspective and the proportions...hmmm... a bit caddy-whompus.

Ah well, we will try, try again. I'm lucky to be painting. Lavagirl is off to camp tomorrow (= more painting time) and, poor dear, Sharkboy is having some dental surgery the day after (= less painting time). I've got the care packages ready to mail and the ice packs ready to apply!
