- My unfortunate ability to get bored with things that take forever and not finish it.
- The fact that it started as a painting of something else, made me very angry, got smeared with all the left over paint on my palette and then painted over in black.
Not a very fortuitous start, but then some of my initially tormented paintings turn out to be my favourites, and I did have a 'light bulb' idea to save this after the oh-so-black paint thickly went on the canvas. You have got to have a little suffering in there somewhere otherwise where is the challenge!?
(At least that is my excuse for when a painting goes horribly, horribly wrong.....)
