Straight thanks to tape...

"PDX Spring Night"
(in progress)
36"x18" acrylic on canvas

I've been busy with the straight lines of the bridge structure lately, and thanks to painters tape I appear to have a very steady touch with the brush. If I were to be doing it freehand, I doubt there'd be a straight line to be found.

Because I have so much unfinished, I often sit staring at the painting, trying to decide which element to tackle next. My brain wants to do it all at once, but my hand and brush aren't capable of pulling that off. I doubt there is a painter alive who could.

Maybe, if I started painting with both hands at the same time I'd get more accomplished.
