I'm calling this piece finished. I had a difficult time getting a decent digital of it, due to reflections and my lack of knowledge of the digital camera. Sometime I should sit with the owner's manual and figure out all the settings. It's not really that complicated.
There is a lot of detail that can't be seen in this little image, but one can get the idea. I see something different each time I look. This is also a piece that works whichever way you hang it.
I've delayed really working by painting the sides of several gallery wrapped canvases, and now by arraging this post. Time's up, I have two pieces to work on today. My first show sale is in two weeks. It may be pushing it to have the ones I side painted today completely dry, but it should work. Once I have an inventory, I usually don't add to it until the next year. This year is an exception. I think I mentioned I have a solo show coming up in October, but to my pleasure, it's been changed to the month of December. I thought about painting things I "thought" would sell ... and changed my mind. I'll keep on painting what I want to.
Some pieces I keep for awhile, some I give away, and the rest I cart around and have fun talking to people at shows. I know my work only appeals to a small percentage of the population. I've found those that stop and look, and talk, are people I really like. Go figure. They've already met me through my work, and feel comfortable enough to be friendly. Time's up again.
