Drawing comes more naturally to me than painting, so I didn't realize how much I was missing the painting. I decided to finish a work that has been close to complete for many months. As I work on as many as nine paintings at one time, often I won't touch one for up to six months. This one was ready to go.
I love the ending of a painting. By then I have worked out most of the problems and I am at the point of putting the frosting on the cake so to speak. I paint in the details that bring a subtlety and depth that I love. It was a lovely day.
