I am typically pretty impatient when I create. I like to finish something in one sitting as I love the instant gratification factor.  This piece has been pretty unusual in that I've been working on it for at least a month, adding more here & there. I'm really liking it and am not yet sure if it's finished. It might need just a little more red.
