Catherine Thompson, You are Small, 2008-10.
I finally, FINALLY finished the above oil painting. And while the photograph doesn’t quite capture the complete essence of the piece, I wanted to post it anyway as sort of a confirmation of it being finished. Back in the Spring of 2008, when the majority of the work was done on this piece, I had it about 98% complete. Then I spent the last two years traveling, working on new paintings, and fearing that if I tried to finish it, I would ruin it somehow. But that was a demon I would overcome. It is finished now, not ruined, and for the time being, I am happy with the result.
