About The Joe #4


I was afraid that picking an image so "precise" might push me to relapse into my over-controlling, obsessive-compulsive, picky and perfectionistic, anal, uptight, and stressed-out painting self. So it was risky. To say the least.

Alas! I survived. I was able to finish this without all the above tendencies re-surfacing. Maybe all my Daily Paint Works therapy sessions are working! 

This was a fun painting. Even tho it may look somewhat "tight", it wasn't painted that way. I'm learning to put paint down and leave it alone. I'm learning that "close enough" sometimes works better than "dead on perfect". Who'da thought?
