I brought four paintings home from Ocean City to retouch. One had a black mark on his nose that didn’t clean off, one had no reflections in his eyes, and two I just wanted to work on a little bit more. This is my worktable where all 343 portraits were painted. When I started better angels, the table was in my studio in Boulder, Colorado. Since March 2010 it has sat in a corner of my living room in Bearsville, NY.
I have been encouraged to blog about the artist’s journey – which in this project has been long, sometimes harrowing, life-changing, full of lessons and far from over. Consider this my first post in that Category.
