|In Progress: "Churning" ©Tabetha Hastings|
The other reason I haven't been in the studio much, is that the pull to play has been strong - especially with the warm weather. Of course play is an integral part of the creative process, but still.
Yesterday I went to my studio with the intention of finishing "Churning" (above). Like so many things in life, the final stages of a painting always take much, MUCH longer than expected. I'll continue to work on it today. It's at that stage that the changes are subtle enough that there won't be any obvious differences, but the changes are necessary.
When I went to log yesterday's hours, I was surprised that I hadn't worked on this painting since January!! It's been far too long.
Looking forward to spending some quality time with it today.
