"A new marine painting on the Easel"
I just returned from a week long trip involving gallery and workshop business. Had a wonderful visit to a beautiful part of the country that I had never seen before in Pa. Met some wonderful folks in Bucks county.
This painting was on the easel when I left....a painting interrupted. After leaving a painting in the middle of critical stages, it is sometimes difficult to just jump back in where one leaves off. I am always anxious to get back to finish a painting that I have some time invested in. The real danger for me is, losing my enthusiasm for the piece if it hangs around to long in the studio. If I'm really into the painting, this usually does not happen. In this case, I am happy with the way it is progressing, so I am looking forward to completing it.... and I really have not spent that much time on it. It is coming together to my satisfaction....thankfully! I have to finish the vegetation in the lower right corner and adjust a few values here and there.....a few sea gulls, and I will probably call this one done. I will post the finished painting later. Thanks for listening to my ramblings.
