Feeling pressure to bring a lofty candidacy to ground level.

Coit Panel

The penultimate piece in my procession of panoramic panels is done!   Six ill-tempered layers on this one and each is like a child to me:

Layer 6: (Out of the jar black with a touch of brown)   The youngest and therefore most immature layer.   Clogged up the screen almost on contact.   Virtually useless.   Wants to go to college to be a philosopher or some bullshit.

Layer 5: (Dark Brown) Very annoying.   Required several intermediate screen washes.   Left a big stain on the mesh even after thoroughly washed off.   Will probably run off with pregnant girlfriend.

Layer 4: (Warmish Light Brown)   Was a mistake from the beginning.   Can’t remember how this one was conceived but I think she accidentally got a little acrylic and water-based in her.   Made for a very uneven coat that would get me fired in a real print shop.   Luckily, Layer 5 covered for most of this.   Not that I approve of Layer 5.

Layer 3: (Beige) Just like layer 4.

Layer 2: (Warm light beige)   Went on smooth and lined up with layer one reasonably well.   I have no problem with layer 2.   He talked about business school once or something.
Layer 1: (Warmish off-white) The first born and therefore best layer.   Set a super example for all her siblings but obviously could not save them.   Oh well.   It’s their fucking life.

Second to last panel

    Really, you make ordinary spaces look extraordinarily beautiful.
    Plus, you’re funny.
