Finally! A completed painting! If you have stuck with me the past couple of months, you will notice that the early pics of this painting had leaves hiding the bird's tail. I finally owned up to the fact that I was hiding behind them, and painted them out. I am pleased to have learned a lot about myself, my procedures, and my creative processes with this painting, and I should be able to move a bit quicker from now on...with less struggles. I am proud to have GROWN with this painting!
