Hm. Had meant to post more updates as the painting was progressing. Now it’s almost done. Oops.
It’s interesting to me that as a holistic practitioner, I am trained to see the whole body – or, the sum of its parts – rather than focusing on just a part; and yet, in painting, I find myself in a zone where I am seeing only one part and working on only one part with no regard for how it fits into the whole. An interesting dichotomy, and one which I need to correct.
Anyway, Clare still needs her muzzle done, and I’m hoping to finish this painting before Christmas.
