Here it is -- finished and signed! This painting has been a prolonged struggle despite of its small size, and I have to constantly battle the urge to tear it up and burn it -- I had to keep on reminding myself this is a deliberate choice and challenge because I want to paint from an imperfect photo and see if I can translate it into a painting that satisfies me in the design aspect. It has served me as a good exercise, and I liked how it turned out at last.
