Making it Big

"Leaning Lanterns"
16 x 20 inches, oil on canvas

 Do you remember the sketch for this one? I can't believe it's taken me almost a month to finish the larger version! That's what Artist's Anxiety will do to you, I guess. If I'm going to paint larger still lives, I really need to make sure I've got a big chunk of time (and an extra dose of mental fortitude) to just bang it out in one sitting. Working back into a half-finished canvas sends my AA through the roof!

That's an amazing painting for a $1 auction.
