This is getting ridiculous now. Granted, I have been known to make some changes along the way when I make a picture, but what is going on with this one is off the charts for me. Maybe it's a good thing. Maybe I needed to be pushed and forced to re-examine things. A teacher in college always professed that you should always draw things at least three times.
