I decided to post this painting project as an incentive.
Guardians of the city small version
I found the picture somewhere and instantly felt a kinship, it was MY style of art. I had what you call in French ” un coup de coeur ” for it ( meaning
Guardians of the city (small 24/30 cm)
falling in love with something ) and wanted to get to work immediately.
I finished it in small ( a rectangular 24 cm wide = 9.4 inches, 30 cm long = 11.8 inches ) called it ” Guardians of the city ” and felt it a challenge to dive into deeper waters and go bigger ( 80 cm =
31.4 inches ) in square version this time.

Every time I worked on it, I saw all the million of details to be refined… I got sometimes discouraged by the magnitude

of the ” job ” and once you start thinking of it as a job, you pause and remind yourself why you had started in the first place with painting.
I waited for the moment of inspiration, which disappears as quickly as it comes ( I call it ” frenzy for… ” it shows up in bouts ) the adventure turned out to become a non-ending assignment.

I hope this post will ” lure ” me into action 🙂 will persuade and stimulate me, to end its finish touch.
