The Stairway

So, it has officially been over a week since my last post! I know, I know, I am sorry! Trust me, I feel worse about it than you do! Anyways, for this post, I thought that I would share a painting that most of my family and friends are familiar with since it has been a long, long process finishing this piece. One reason for the lengthy process is that most of the piece has been made with very thin oil glazes using galkyd lite (as I have mentioned in previous posts). I started this painting a while back as a submission for a gallery review (which didn't end in my favor, but it was a great experince). Months and months later, I keep telling myself "since it's almost complete, I am going to finish it," and well... NOW I AM! Most of you would recognize this painting about 15 layers back, so take a second look if you remember it!

This is the one painting that I've been patiently awaiting you to finish. I don't think I've ever told you this but it's one of my fav's. So is this now the "finished piece"?
