I would say I am midway through both paintings. I have a ton of work left to do on them even still, but I don't have to make HUGE decisions anymore. I just have to worry about details and painting well. I think I will make my November deadline.
The above image in no way reflects what is going on in my studio right now. I am the only one working on these paintings. And with smaller brushes. If anything I resemble the guy on the far right in the image; hunched over the painting and looking uncomfortable.
