24x18 oil on gessoed panel
I am in love with this painting. Not only was it marvelously fun to paint, but I like that I stopped before overworking it. Some may say it looks unfinished. But I like that, and I want to stop when I've said enough. I'm giving myself permission to stop. Sometimes leaving work unfinished and gestural says more than correcting all the edges and defining everything. I'm going to play more with materials, compositions, framing, and put more variety out there in my galleries - if they will have it!
Happy birthday to my mom "today" - a leap year baby. :-)
