Art is a jealous mistress, and, if a man have a genius for painting, poetry, music, architecture, or philosophy, he makes a bad husband, and an ill provider. (Waldo Emerson)

Updated on my recent painting - Walt Whitman

Well here is an update of my latest. I am trying to go very slow and work in layers and glazes. I am learning a little bit more about the glazing process right now. It works MIRACLES! I just need to practice more so I can be smoother. I am so afraid he is going to look like a
cartoon character. That would not be too good for me. We will see.. EVEENNN if he does, I will still appreciate the time I spent on the painting. I am good for that.  I am a little curious how I am going to end up doing all his gray beard. Very curious! Till I blog again! XO 

UPDATE: I worked a bit more and now here is where I am ;) hahaha.. I Know.. Just finish it then show us.. I can't help it..

Thank you Victoria. After I took this picture I went back and worked a bit more on his eyes. They are a little sadder now which is good :) He was looking too cheery! Thank you again. And thank you very much for coming in and looking at my update!
