I returned to the easel tonight to work on Sean. My eyes went from the photo to the canvas to the photo to the canvas and back and forth, over and over and over, looking for that place where I would start. I got to thinking that, well, maybe I’ll just put this one aside for now, start on Monty & Friends, and return to Sean later when… Hey. Wait a minute. The only other painting I’ve ever put aside because it was just bad was Bodhi, which I painted over with gesso and… Oh. It became this. I started Sleepy Seany on it. Hmmm.
[It’s the canvas.]
