Hope you read this David Z.
I'm trying to get back into art after two + traumatic years. I started by reviewing my records:
I have a registry of my paintings which I was updating today and noticed that number 61 was blank. It drove me mad searching for which painting No 61could be. Then I remembered that I have this blog, and there it was: No 61’Vintage Steam Train’ Dec 2016. ……… It is unfinished!!
So why is an unfinished work registered as 61? Because I am a Virgo and need my art registered in date sequence so I can assess my progress.
So why is it unfinished? Because life is short and I’m always champing-at-the-bit to get on with loads of other exciting projects … and I knew I could get back to all that smoke and steam later. The train was the exciting bit, the steam less so.
It’s a big canvas 80 x 60 cms (32 x 24 inches) …. I’ll have to finish now.
