40x30 oil
It's that time. The time when I have to stop the excitement of starting new paintings and instead finish the many I have. With a solo show coming up in April, I need these finished.
The hardest part of painting is knowing how to finish. There are many, many stopping points, but when does it say what I want it to say?
This painting is inspired from my many studies of Lake Needwood and the river. The bottom third of the painting is the strongest. The struggle is getting the top to support it and not take over. More on this one later.
PS The show opens April 11 at the Waverly Street Gallery.
