18x36 original acrylic
BY ARTIST DEREK COLLINSThis is my latest painting. I have been painting, frantically today to finish it, so that I could get it on this blog. This is my first entry. It is a painting that I struggled with. It started out looking pretty shabby. It seemed that I just kept correcting things. Then all of a sudden it just started coming together and it turned out really well. Sometime the ones that I struggle with the most, turn out to be the best. Sometimes not! There is a point at which I decide to keep going or to throw it away and start over. I'm glad I kept going.
