I am in a period of time between art shows, but well aware of the task at hand which is to produce "new work" by September. I feel that as a professional artist, I am obliged to always try to be producing new work so that collectors can see an evolution and freshness to the art. To that end, I was inspired by the photos that I posted last on this blog of the view looking up at the trees. I am not a realist painter, nor strive to be, so I was seeking my own interpretation of the subject and my "view" or vision of the painting. Since my home can be a fraternity of sorts, I was also feeling the need to produce art that is overtly feminine. (yes, hammer and drill wielding me)
How do I know when a painting is finished? I was surprised at myself that I responded quite quickly: "I don't always know when I'm done, but I always know when I'm not."
With that, I'm done.

thank you Karena, for the comment and for stopping by. I love this painting too- some paintings are all about pleasing someone else. This one is for me.
