On July 4th, 2006, I embarked on a quest to become the pre-eminent American portrait painter of the 21st century. This blog chronicles that journey. With apologies to Joan Didion, I call it THE YEAR OF MAGICAL PAINTING.

What are the chances?
I love this photo. In a million years I couldn't draw a line of paint this straight across my thumb if I tried.
In the end, I decided to just leave it be and not wash my hands for a couple of days. Just to enjoy the majesty of the thing.
