I've pushed paint around on this picture for far too long. I think she's done...maybe a few little jabs with the brushes but maybe not, too. I want to do more oil portraits, get my hand, arm and head (mostly) to loosen up and get out of the tight zone!!!!!! I like the detail here and I dislike it too. Ah, the totally ambivalent painter.
