Bones are great

I feel that the arm is beginning to work and hope to do the same thing with the rib cage. The figure needs to be darker and the red of the bedding will need to be toned down. During the last few weeks I have hit the "wall" with this painting and, as always, with perseverance things are coming together.

This painting started as a meditation on the damage that life has done to me and to show that I was strong still. During the painting I realised that I was also showing my pain. This is a tough painting.
