The problem is -- me. I wasn't cut out to be a watch repair person or handle something requiring pinpoint precision. One little misstep and a nose is in the wrong place. Compounding that -- a delicate beautiful subject and a nice couple already anticipating for her to arrive at their home -- made for challenging work.
"Our Lady at St. Patrick's" is now resting, drying, waiting to be shipped to her purchasers. Phew.
At the same time, I think small paintings can be completely mesmerizing -- charming and pull you into their Lilliputian beings.
