I really want to try and work on a series of paintings based on a collective idea. I want to work of off the picture above. I'm still trying to figure out more things and develop the series more. I'm thinking about 5 paintings...maybe 7?

I painted this last year. There was no idea or plan set out ahead of time with this one. The face and the hands were done separately with color pencil on a piece of bristol paper. Then they were later glued onto the canvas. The canvas was about 30"x40", which I built.
Sometimes I really liked it, other times I couldn't really stand it. A few months ago, I got really lazy and didn't have time to build a new canvas. Buying one would have been too expensive, so I painted over this.
I regret painting over it now. Mostly I regret not finishing it. The whole thing came together in two days. I don't finish a lot of stuff. Mostly because I simple lose interest. But I miss this one.

I wish I wasn't so lazy sometimes. This summer has gone by pretty fast, and I have still not found enough motivation to finish anything new. I've started a hand full of paintings this year and never got around to finishing them. I'm not sure why. I guess I just lose motivation easily.
