I had hoped to be showing my newest painting on gallery canvas in this post but it just so happens that I had to take a step back and well, get a closer look at what needs to be done. This latest canvas is one of those paintings that I thought would be a piece of cake and would roll along quickly from beginning to end with no snags in between. I should know it by now, those are always the ones that end up being the hardest and the most work....just Murphy's law I suppose.
I actually thought I had this tree scape (with birds) finished the other day and then as I looked at it, I realized it needed so much more to be considered completed. Not wanting to realize this...(even though I knew it), I asked Chris what his thoughts were and he said " of course you need more birds, you know that." Well yes, I did know that but I just didn't want to admit it, it took asking him about it to get me to step back and take a closer look at this large piece of art so I could really let it sink in that nope......I'm not nearly done yet.
Back to lots of hard work on this painting.....hopefully in my next post I can show the finished piece.
