Watercolor 11 1/2" x 15"
It took a long time to complete this piece! Almost three weeks. That old saying comes to mind, "The best laid plans of men and mice often go astray."
That's always true fort art work too. As I work on a painting, there is an idea of how it might look when done. Many times the finished piece is far different than the original thought. That's the case with Broken III. Another comment often heard from working artists is this: "The work takes on a life of it's own." This piece did exactly that. Colorfully yours, Sandy

Due to the flue, it's been a little over a week since I have been able to do any work on BROKEN III. Thanks to everyone who wished me well! It worked...or was all the many prayers that were offered? Thank you. One good thing about being down with the flue...I did lose 6 lbs!
Here is the progress image for today.

Progress on BROKEN III.
Probably 3 or 4 days left to go. Now is the time to start thinking about what I will be doing next. One sure way to fall into that artist's block is to finish a piece and not have the next painting in mind.

There was a lot of detailing done today. It's a slow process because I use mostly a #6 round brush...that's small for this size paper. Most of the objects can be picked out at this time, but there is still much to do. I was hoping to complete this in time to enter the first Regional juried Exhibition for West Michigan (Gallery Uptown in Grand Haven) but that's not going to happen. The entries are due the last week of January. I doubt that it will be framed and ready to hang by then.
Your comments are always welcome.
