Yesterday I went to art discussion at O'Connors. The topic was about finishing paintings.  I think I read that Georgia O'Keeffe worked on several paintings at one time. Isn't that interesting?

To see what everyone brought go HERE

It is interesting and I also do it. It is surprising what one or two days can do with one's perspective. Sometimes we realize it is finished and sometimes we get a clear picture of what needs to be done.

I usually work on multiple paintings. Nice bit of trivia. YOUR painting is GREAT!

Libby Fife said...

Love all of that green!

I enjoyed the meeting notes as always. I really like Stephanie Cissna's(sp?) work as well as Ron's-I'd like to see more of his stuff. Tell him to hurry up! LOL:)

Awesome reflected light/sky in the stream, Celeste! I think the sky color is gorgeous and I love how it colors the greens of the land. Perfect and oh so serene!

This is gorgeous...such a green glow. I like the bright light green brush strokes on the path especially.

I think it's healthy to work on several paintings at the same time; it keeps you from getting too emotionally involved with any one of them. Smart Gal that Georgia.
