I refuse to allow myself to work on this painting anymore. Unlike some of my early blob-successes, this painting was at a graceful state after the first wash of blue, then it has gone progressively downhill. The foreground is crusty mess of successive layers of paint. The figure, perpetually awkward, has been scraped, glazed, and repainted too many times. It's a work on paper, so I should think of it as a sketch, but it's definitely has the surface of a canvas by now.
