The week before this was painted we were out on Ocean Drive in the hot July sun. Not everyone loved it, so there was some pressure on this day to "find a shady spot". We went by the library at Salve, literally under the trees. Wanted to show the start of my painting, the time where I freak out a little because it is so ugly. Pushing through that stage brought me to the point where I'm done. Out of time, watching the clock, and deciding not to work on this back in the studio. Just let it stand as a plein air figure.
