|Miniature #44 - May 28 - June 3, 2012, 5 x 5," mixed media on panel|

I also finished a couple (!) of full-scale works. The first is the panel I was so excited about starting after mini 38. The irony with this one is that it took me longer to prepare the panel than to paint the image (about 10 days and 7 days, respectively). In the spirit of improving through practice though, I think that I learned a few things, and, hopefully, the preparation will go more smoothly next time. I also finished (and named) the Gothic work I wrote about a few weeks ago. I was nervous, but decided to go for it and put a final gloss varnish on it (and it turned out well - inspiration from the minis in action!) I actually finished this one so quickly, that I had to "take it away from myself," so that won't be tempted to meddle with it.
