Painting has been driving me nuts over the last 9 months or so. I have not made anything that seemed to work. About three months ago I declared that painting was "the worst" and just stopped doing it. Yesterday I finished this tiny little piece, and while it is not in anyway a masterpiece, it does seem to suggest to me that maybe painting can stop being 'the worst' for now, anyway.
