After several months of planning and painting the first panel in my series, Canto 3, is finished. The only thing I was unhappy about is that the painting took as long as it did. There were many weeks where I was trying to find the right look for the costumes, how the fabric flowed and in the end, I was able to purchase the right fabric and "look" that I wanted. I don't forsee this as being a problem going forward. Also, I was swamped two different times with commissions and the holidays played a part in distracting me away from my studio. All in all, I probably worked on the painting for 4 weeks total. I'd like to see each painting, going forward, down to 2-3 weeks each. Thanks for all the kind remarks about the first panel. I hope you'll stick around to see the other 39.
