Painted at the open house at Harvest Farm Preserve yesterday, honored to be one of the handful of artists invited to participate.
This little (6x6) study was funny; I had been chatting with some nice guy who stood behind me watching as I painted. I was about done with the study, but went to my pallet and picked up some paint, and then held the brush poised over the painting for 20 seconds as I considered doing a little more with the leaves. Uncertainly, I brought the brush closer to the painting, and the guy behind me gave a disapproving, "Mmmmm..." I withdrew the brush, laughing, and told the guy, "You're right. It's done."
Here it is, saved from over-working by a stranger.
