Today I finished this painting which I had been working on for more than a week. The title is WINDOW LIGHT, watercolor, image size 11 1/2" x 11 1/2".
I took the photo back in 2008, after cutting the flowers from my garden. That same year I did the first watercolor of it, which was accepted for inclusion in the Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts, held at the Grand Rapids Art Museum. The painting sold at the exhibit, but I was never completely satisfied with the finished piece. I came across the photo a few weeks ago and decided to do it once more, but this time give it more richness and depth.
Now, as I look at this finished piece, I am already wondering if I could have done a better job of it.....
But then, that is how I have felt about every one of the more than 2,000 works I have done!
