Two months or so, two different canvases, and about 4 other paintings buried beneath this final product.  I'm happy with it, but what a process.....

I kept adding to the original image, trying to clarify it, but it just wasn't working.  Finally gessoed over about 3/4 of the canvas and started all over from there, working with the tiny portion of the image that I'd left uncovered.

Now it's time to sit back and rethink my life choices.

And, btw, there are entire online forum pages devoted to people arguing about whether or not the word "gesso" can be a verb, and have a past tense.  Very funny stuff.  The general consensus seems to be NO, but I say fuck 'em all.
