Racing with the Clock
At last we come to my benchmark for failure! If anything could have gone wrong in painting this, it did. And I don't mean computer issues. I bit off more than I could chew and tried to chew like hell. Hell is what materialized. Racing with the Clock is exactly right. Two hours to paint a factory is insane. I could do a better job today, but six characters and a room full of 'stuff' would be a headache for most anyone. The musical is The Pajama Game and the song is manic and relentless. Too much to do in too little time.
I bombed on some other images later, but this is the one I'm most embarrassed to show. What's sadder, still, is that the underlying composition isn't all that bad. I got lost in brick and lights and machines and faces and no value structure. Learning process.
