Day 16-19: studio

It was sunny today so I pulled the painting out of the living room and into the studio to see what it looked like in daylight. I worked on it a bit more. I swore I wouldn't, but I did. Then I swore AGAIN that I wouldn't work on it anymore. I repeated this process at least twice today. I'm done with it. I've got a gnawing feeling that if I switched over to oils, it might look like what I thought it should like and I could continue this madness ad infinitum.

Xmas music, followed by Mission Impossible and Chinese.

Long day in studio. Worked on 2-3 paintings over and over.

Visited with cousin. Discussed handguns and rifles.
