This is an older painting from the gallery.
Working on a painting, I get it to a certain point then put it aside. I rarely finish a painting, even a small one, in a single sitting. The task is to remain objective without becoming over critical of oneself, which can ruin a painting.
This is a painting of Amy nursing her son. Amy was a model who worked in the art schools around Dayton, Ohio. She posed for one or two others paintings as well. Her husband was an artist too, if memory serves.
I worked on this over several months. I remember struggling with parts of it. I like how I painted the sofa.
