Ah, the caffeine addiction....
The large scale painting is finally finished, with only a couple of places to tweak as it finishes drying. The hardest part, when to say, "finished". Is there such a thing as finished? Or, do artists just learn when to walk away? Is this why they say the devil is in the details?
"Flowers for Julia"

40 x 60 oils on canvas
I am enjoying painting near the large window and for a bit longer the plan is to keep the bed shoved up against the treadmill (poor thing needs company anyway), so that I may continue to paint upstairs. I have enjoyed doing some impressionistic and/or abstract work, and as soon as I can, up goes the 48 x 60 canvas....
Thanks to all of you who attended the open house/downtown friday event in BSG.
