Well, I thought I was done with the "Three Roses" 11"x14" but after looking at it in my studio for a while I just wasn't feling it and decided to jump back in. Mostly I worked on the background but also on the dipper and the table. Who knows if its better or just different, but I feel better. I can see why some artists turn their paintings to the wall after completing them, they just nag at you. I'm happy with the "Fifth of July" 8"x10", at least for now. It looks way better than it's photographing. One thing about working on linen is that the texture throws off my overhead lighting system. I'm going to have to come up with a solution. Maybe I can do something with photoshop. I'll just have to spend a day figuring it out.
