What is it about seeing your painting tiny on a screen that lets you finally see all that's wrong with it??? I see, of course, that I'll need to fiddle with the ellipse of the tray rim before I let it loose. Otherwise, I think it can go out into the world and be a painting. Not an underpainting, not a good start, not a junior painting, but a grown up, graduate painting, with a mortarboard and tassel and everything. Ok, maybe, but only when I fix the ellipse. Maybe.
