Portrait Watercolor Finished!



Life in the FAST LANE has finished.

I worked again on this portrait to bring it to conclusion.  Here is the FINAL VERSION.


I like it now-- it reaches a new level for me.   It was good that I abandoned it for a few months.  I really became detached-- and didn't care what happened to it-- as long as reworking it taught me something.

I had a freedom when reworking it.....  and things progressed from there.

It's good to return to former paintings--- that are quite measuring up--- and bring about a different, more resolved statement.
