Are you familiar with Bill Watterson’s Calvin&Hobbes?
Do you remember that strip where Hobbes asks Calvin whether he already has come up with an idea for something he should be doing, and Calvin’s retort is that you have to be in the right mood? When Hobbes asks what mood is that Calvin goes “last minute panic”.
Well I’ve been in last minute panic mode for over a week. Painting like a possessed woman.
Painting and ripping and restarting and layering paint like there were no tomorrow.
Disregarding hours of work in 15 minutes by hitting full blast what once were mild dark areas with a brush loaded with thick dark paint, mercilessly.
Removing masking tape (which BTW managed to take with it some of my hair - yes, the gum in the hair nightmare come true way after grade school) just to realize I wanted more darks hence laying down some more masking tape.
After taking this photo yesterday those darks have expanded up the neck to the jaw and under the chin.
Last minute panic. What a ride. And loved each second of it.
