And then sometimes I have to save a painting

Almost finished with this painting which is 40x30 in size. Interesting thing happened with this one and it's like I had to save it. I probably did a couple paintings on here (as I recall) then decided to throw some latex primer on it thinking it would give me a clean slate. Well, the primer was not for canvas paintings obviously it made it real shiny and streaky and so it was difficult trying to apply any more paint on top really. I ended up with the background mostly black and added a gray faced lady with white hair and big shapes on each side of her, with the exception of the drips on the upper left hand corner. The shock blue light montana marker saved the day though really id have to say.
