The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.” —Emile Zola 
... and more work and even more work.

I am at the start of something new as you see in the above image. This beginning stage is a very elementary sketch. Parts are even like stick figures. This is just to work out my composition, and then I apply a very thin wash of oil paint over the background and foreground. This may be my very favorite part of painting—the beginning design issues.

Ah yes, I know I still need to finish the "Aggie Lab"—a joke is in there somewhere.
