You can't force a painting.

While in many ways I would like an ETA on this work, for an artist, there is nothing more unpredictable than a painting.  It is impossible to plan the life of making a painting.  Some paintings take years, and some take a very short time.  The painting will reveal itself to the painter when it is complete.  I do recognize that the time is near for this work...but I am unsure of when.

The thing is complete when you can let it be.  - Gita Bellin
