This is the point where I almost wish I hadn't shown you the process from beginning to completion. The agonizing psychological conclusions of holding and then wiping out hundreds of years in a few dry brushstrokes while adding a dash of drama is almost too much. But there it is. The naked results. I am finished with it. Yet my eye keeps wandering back and contemplating - what if we were different? What else would be different if we were? Silly questions that forced my hand and are unanswerable.
Would you have been happier with just the end result?
