Had to get this one out of my system. I did
take it to the academy and it was frowned
on primarily that it was a painting of a
photograph, subject matter not something
they particularly cared for either. I did this
painting in my first painting class at the
academy as the final. Although I may have
proved that I have this oil technique
mastered, my instructor made sure I knew I
wasn't a master of anything at that time. In
Hindsight they were right, I was just getting
started was all.
