Family Visit and Painting


We had a wonderful visit from my family the week of April 15 – a lot of eating, drinking, and endless chatting. I thought my husband would get overwhelmed but he was a real trooper – bless his heart!

My painting was put on hold but I made a lot of progress with the three pieces I was working on the week before. It takes me a while to decide when to stop working on a painting. A former art teacher said, “One of the most difficult things for an artist is to know when to stop working on a painting.” One piece is near completion – it is a landscape on a 30″ x 40″ gallery canvas. I am quite pleased with the colors I’ve used and I’ve already signed it (?) but it needs a few more finishing touches. I will post a photo when it is ready.
