And now we are done
Man, can you believe we are done?
Now for the unveiling--about which I have considerable anxiety. I mean, you LITERALLY know as much as I do about how this painting is going to look.
Also, just for the record, we are not actually done. There's at least another day or two of tuning, problem resolution, and background painting (I don't think I'm going to leave the background pure black. I'm thinking about a very dark gray dripped overlay, just to help pull it all together).
And there's the question of the dogwood branch. This may, in the end, be discarded.
