Woolsworth was a painting I'd been wanting to do for a while before I actually did it. And when I started everything was coming along just fine until I made the realization that the sheep is about 2 inches off center. I wanted to scrap the whole project right there but I kept on painting despite my annoyance. Now I'm actually happy about the off-centered-ness of the picture because I think it adds to the whole composition--it's the art of imperfection. .
This painting cost me two weeks of attention, painting like always in my spare time throughout each day, while listening to Gone with the Wind on audio, which of course was lovely.
