oil - in progress
I began this piece today; it is the first of 8 to hit the easel that I have planned out for future shows by year's end. I am tired just thinking about finishing it. It took me all day to do just this. I haven't arrived at that magic moment of the painting where it flies out of my brush. I am concentrating a great deal on just where I am in the leaves/stems that I can't yet see color. Paintings of this size and subject are started like a hard jigsaw puzzle: one piece at a time. But you just wait until it's done - I can see it and it's a beaut!
