My paintings are coming along!
I love to wait for the right moment
of applying another coat,
feel it blend with the previous one and
mix and smooth it until I get the right hue.

Sometimes the next layer will be painted
a couple of days after the previous one,
it depends on the drying point it has reached.
Other times I will wait until
it is almost completely dry,
so that I can drag the next layer over it
and with it scratch the underlying one.

I love looking at the various stages
of the paintings sometimes for days.
Some turn into a new painting altogether.

The surprise factor enhances the pleasure of painting.
