oil on linen mounted on board 12"x12"

Another long-term painting. Here's a question: What do you think is preferable, a brisk output of good work (at least some of it good), or slow output of better work? Lately I'm leaning towards the slow approach. 

An alternate title could be "Daffodil in Winter" because even though today is the first day of spring, I started this in February.

I like the way the daffodil seems to be caught in a prison of parallels, and leans longingly towards the outdoors and its own image, which is another kind of parallel.
