Small paintings this week-they are 3x3 and 5x7's . The top painting is complete, that is i don't want to change anything on it. the The second painting is sort of a study in cool colors , i don't mind that one either. I am thinking the second rose painting could use some color changes, perhaps some more warm colors-something is bothering me-not sure quite what it is. The pears are finished while the bird is evolving. I can't tell you how many times i have changed backgrounds and the birds shape and position; now though, i feel i have the correct proportions. Poor bird had a giant head for while. Well off to paint in the bitter cold,snowy and glorious winter!
