I'm having an extremely extremely frustrating summer of painting. Most of it had gone yet very few pictures have turned out well and even the simplest ones have taken far longer than needed. Some that have taken a mere two days have needed two months, and numerous failed versions. Sometimes only the simple fill-in ideas have worked at all. I often think I'm going backwards and that 2007 was better. Yet, I will continue to bang my head against a brick wall and persist in painting.

Hopefully the better paintings will finally become completed in the last dash. The larger ones in progress are coming along and I have plans for several smaller ones in my more classic style of mountain forms with dramatic figures, skies and surrealist objects.
