I finished my second small painting, 6"x6" oil pastel on gessoed board. Not making 2 a week yet but at least one per week.

I am working up to 2 little paintings a week. I did get one done this week and started the sketch for another which will be worked on next week. Even if I get one per week, I'll feel good.

Finish, sort of

I finally got the pomegranate out and finished it, I think. I may crop it as I think the composition was the issue I had with this all along. It is on board, so it will have to be sawed. I'll keep looking at it. One image is the whole thing and the other is the cropped. I have gessoed 12 6x6 hardboards to start at least 2 paintings a week.
