Pablo Picasso isn’t an Asshole – A Few Finishing Touches.

Another surprising realization in my process and I feel a great relief for realizing it: I will probably never be certain if a piece is completely finished, much less be rid of the feeling that I might need to put more on it, but I now understand what I've read in other artists processes... you … Continue reading Pablo Picasso isn’t an Asshole – A Few Finishing Touches.

Pablo Picasso isn’t an Asshole – Starting the Skin…
