8 x 10 oil on canvas
When to wipe and when to not wipe, that is the question. Even though this painting looks pretty straight forward it was a bear, the spots really gave me fits. I so wanted to do the ole' wipe-a-roo after about 2 hours. I remembered the advice my mother used to give me when I was little and I couldn't figure out my homework, she'd say, "just let it be and come back later and try again". I stopped for the day and revisited it the next. Isn't it amazing how spot on Mom's are?
These delightful flats are another pair from the collection of my neighbor, Jill Stachura.
