I have 8 unfinished paintings. Natalie of Blaugustine suggested a new art movement — 7ism — get a piece done in 7 days. What a great idea! She suggested posting progress. I attended an art workshop with my friend Holly on Saturday and I am committed to finishing this painting in 7 days. Since I am going away for the weekend to a wedding in San Francisco this Saturday I need to get on with it. So here’s the first stage, still slightly wet and untouched since the workshop. This morning I will do some more to it. I am not dissatisfied with the beginning, but it will almost certainly look worse when I get done today. That always happens. It gets worse before it gets better.
The dimensions of the picture are 12′ x 36′. It is oil on canvass.
