This is a horrible painting. The composition stinks and the painting itself is really sloppy in a bad way. But, I painted today and that is more than I can say for yesterday when I failed to meet my goal for a second time. I'm not going to apologize for missing yesterday, I will however apologize for the offense to your eyes that this image is causing. I'm so sorry you have to look at this, it is horrible. I promise to do better tomorrow when I have a bit more time to allot to my project.
During my undergraduate studies, I spent a great deal of time in the painting studio working with traditional oils. Teaching middle school art for the past 12 years has taken me away from those roots. This "one a day" project is aimed at re-inspiring that creativity and technique.
