Here is the final product of the painting from Thom's photo. I'm very happy with it right now. I kept myself from over doing it by placing a picture from "American Art Review" beside my palette. The painting I kept comparing this with was very rough....so rough you really couldn't tell what the subject was. I admired the brushwork and thickness of the paint, trying to keep from picking at my own. It's really quite painterly close up, though it's hard to see it in this photo. It's big.......about 30 x 40.....painted over another painting I once did that was ready for recycling.
Now it's time to move on to something else. I already have the next painting in mind.
