Sometimes you think a painting is finished (or you want it to be finished) but there is a nagging voice telling you otherwise. Such was the case when I first posted this little painting , declaring it finished. But as soon as it posted, I felt it wasn’t . My doubt was confirmed, just a few hours after posting it , by a phone call from my friend the artist Paul Torres. Paul, with his usual courtliness let me know how much he LOVED the new painting , then just as quickly told me how the hell to improve it. I love Paul for that, the ability to ever so cleverly help me attain what I seek without crushing my spirit.  Check out Paul’s fantastical world at this link:http://www.paul-torres.com .

This is how the painting looked before Paul’s phone call.

I’m thankful for my friends, lets just say that, particularly Paul.

One thought on “Jonah, revisited”

  1. I really love this painting Leonard, such a poetic interpretation of the story. And so good or hear how the internet works to being artists together, to chat, share ideas, discuss work and help each other with thoughts on how to develop things.
    Just had a look at Paul’s work, it’s fab!
