When I first started painting I spent 3 months on one painting of a neon restaurant sign, trying to get the perspective and detail. It paid off with a jurors award and the sale of the piece, but it was hard!! So today I tried just a small cross-section of the sign and it was just as hard!! I tried to stay loose, but get enough detail to tell a story, and fit perspective in there somewhere. I'd like to think I will burn this photo and move on, but a part of me knows that I'm too stubborn to do that and one of these days I will come back and try it again!! 6" x 9" oil on Ampersand board.
