humor, recovery, horseracing, kvetching, spirituality ... or whatever's on my mind, one day at a time.

The Most Frustrating Painting Ever
I honestly don't know what gave me the bright idea to do a painting of Churchill Downs on Derby Day. It's crowded. I've been working on this damn 8 x 10 painting for two weeks now, and I'm grateful it's almost done. I still need to straighten out and sharpen some lines and add one more row of brightly colored blotches (people) and the Twin Towers need to be redone (well, the one on the right anyway). Everything in this painting is so tiny!
I think my favorite bit is the ambulance on the right. And, at least the horses don't look like goats. For a while there, they kinda did.
