Another paint day; I worked on my son’s fox painting and a painting for my poetry book. Unfortunately this was the last time I worked on either, really need to get back to it. However, working in oils is messy and time-consuming. I really haven’t had a good time to work with it again. I do not like this photo. I hate the flash, it’s too harsh. I tried to compensate for it with a vignette, but it just looks sloppy. Not every day can be a masterpiece and this day I was more interested in painting than photography.
