Though I have a goal everytime I sit down to paint, changes always happen. The changes are necessary to improve the final product. Anyone who saw this painting in the early stages probably saw the sold sign across the left corner, which is no longer there. People often read too much into text in paintings so I felt it needed to be changed, hence the barcode.
As a painter it is important to enjoy the process of painting because otherwise nothing would get done. Seeing a painting come together is really satisfying. When spending anywhere from 3 hours to 8 hours at a time on a painting it is almost more important to enjoy the process than enjoying the finished piece.
There are many different ways to get to a destination so it is vital to enjoy the journey.
