This project was by far the most time consuming, tedious, laborous painting or project of any kind I have ever done in my entire life. I offered to submit my services for sale as a service project, and have to admit it will not happen again. There is a reason why people like photographs more than paintings, and that is because it looks exactly like that person. When you paint someone's portrait, you are highlighting the things that make them stand out, so any imperfections/flaws that define them as that person. When you photograph someone, you make them look their best because ultimately they will end up resembling themselves no matter what.
Merrick and Cassandra for years. Initially I felt like a failure for hating painting so much but then I though that maybe this will be good for me, to step away from all this for awhile. Maybe when I have my own studio I will be more inclined to paint, or maybe I will find something else altogether to make me happy.
Painting for hours made me deliriously happy once. And I think it could again. And if not, then maybe I will just join Bananas for culinary school.
