Holy crap! I painted this today. I have 3 – 4 sessions left on it probably but hell, what a great start. I felt so good to be doing an “Alanna painting” in oils. I really just did not like my experience last semester with acryllics. I feel like starting this painting today, fixed so many frustrations I’ve been feeling. Look! I can paint strong, beautiful paintings that I like and are meaningful to me! I AM a good painter! Hurray!
