Sometimes the stars just do not align properly! I made an attempt to paint a pear last night. It took me about four hours and I was struggling with it the whole time. I know I wasn't focused, but it was a simple little pear. I looked at it this morning and decided I should try it again with a different pear. I painted it within two hours without a hitch. So I took a photo and uploaded it to post here. After typing the title my keyboard stopped working. Luckily I'm able to use another device to post it. Then I looked at the date and yes, it's the 13th day, 13th painting, hmmm.
