Tiny Shondra

Shondra 2.5" x 3.5" Oil on Masonite

I took this photo about 10 times. Every time I put it on my screen I thought what is the matter here? - why is it so blurry? Then I'd re-shoot it and the same thing - blurry! What is wrong with me? What is wrong with my camera? So I went and actually taped the tiny painting ON my screen - next to what I thought was the best image I had...and darned if they didn't look identical, except for a little color adjustment. At this point I think I say - "Hey, it's supposed to look like that!" Actually it sort of is...I was trying to avoid detail, and go for the big shapes - (well, as big as a 2.5" x 3.5" shape can get) and even at that I over worked it - this will be getting fixed.
