Gronk. That one did not come easily, and in the end, I don’t know if there’s enough to it. The composition became very formal at the end, and the goldfinch is too bright, and my four-hour-war with the figure left me rather discouraged about the whole thing.

On the other hand, I have this sneaking suspicion that the gearworld’s not gonna let me go that easily, so there may well be another painting or two before that particular rude beast slouches back to the hindbrain and waits to be born again.
