As you can see, I'm almost finished with this painting. I've got a few paintings going all at once as I head into the home stretch for my exhibition at Dowling Walsh in Rockland. This painting still has several hours of painting grass as well as final day of glazing/fussing to go. I can't quite bring myself to finish it in one fell swoop (see Character flaws, et al.) and have jumped into some other paintings. I'm a junkie for the excitement of the first few days of a painting, so when I felt my energy and confidence flagging last week, I knew it was time to start another piece while promising myself that I'd chip away at the details of this big painting. I'm still unsure of the title for this one, but hope to have it resolved soon. Happily though, the frame is underway--I can't wait to see this framed. It'll be a lovely cherry frame with a gold liner. Williams Cabinetry is again building the frame, I'll do the gilding and then we'll put it all together.
