Today's painting session was spent finishing a piece started last year. It just seemed like the right time. Sometimes a painting will hang out in the studio for a long while before I am up to the task of finishing it. Some artists say the work is speaking to them. You could say that about this piece today. It was demanding my attention. I knew how I wanted it to look today. As I was painting the two cones on the branch I felt like I was painting faded old blue jeans.
This painting has been hanging out in the studio for a year or so--unfinished.
