This painting was started last October. I liked how I started it and I wasn't certain about how to complete it. So it sat for a while and was stared at until last week when I figured out how to complete it. It was a matter of the trees in the background--how to deal with the form... along with the tops of the grouping of trees. I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep the turquoisey bottom, ultimately I decided I liked it.
This is another one that's been sitting for a while. First I should say the sky is more purple than it looks here. Ali (my daughter) really loves this, although she liked it before I worked into it today...so maybe she doesn't really love it anymore! I have mixed feeling about it...it's one of those things. Sometimes I love a painting immediately upon completion, other times they grow on me. Other times, I'm not satisfied with a painting, and I don't look at it for a long time (months or more), then I either like it or can figure out what I'm not happy with and work into the piece or just put it in the pile of paintings that get gessoed and re-used.
