When I am stuck while working on a painting and I am unsure how to resolve a problem, I find that it helps to move on to something else and have a little fun.
I was in precisely such a predicament at the easel and that is how Ernie came to take her rightful place as Queen of the Studio.
I present to you The Coronation of Ernestine.
As you might imagine, it was a grand affair! Queen Ernestine was served fish-flavored treats that smelled quite badly – just the way her highness likes ’em.
This proved to be just the thing to get “un-stuck” and was most enjoyable.
