Finished a Painting

I just feel so grateful to be painting everyday, SO GRATEFUL! I finished a painting, Roses, which had me struggling with the muddy colors and weak composition — I talked to myself, decided I would make bold new decisions and jump in with no fear.

Now, because I have a studio and have made the time to paint, I can follow through with my instincts and stay in the painting zone. I find as I try and resolve these paintings, I don’t want to abandon some sort of representation — something for people to grab onto. We shall see if that continues to be my thoughts as time goes on. I am quite pleased with this finished painting.
