For one of my birthdays when I was a kid, someone gave me a set of markers. I remember not wanting to waste them, so I put them aside for "some special project in the future." Several years later I finally brought them out, only to find they had dried up!
When I got back from France and I was going through my photos, I was most excited about the reference for this painting. But I decided I should save it, because if I used my favorite photos first, I would be ... wasting them? So yesterday I decided - what the heck - I'm going to paint them in the order I am most excited about. And when I run out, I'll go and take more photos! So here's this one, and I have to say (screw modesty), I'm kind of totally in love with it.
