This is something I am working on at present.. I find it hard to ‘stop painting’ sometimes..it’s like my conscience is whispering to stop but I can’t. Physically, I feel compelled to work some of my paintings up and up until they are almost smothered.. that is where I ‘go’ when I surround myself with my subject..
When I feel I am nearing the conclusion of a painting, I gather a lot of mixed thoughts and feelings about how it should finish.. it’s the worst and best feeling..
I am limboed with the contemplation of a work in progress..there is a fine line between absolute euphoria and complete failure..
you need a good sense of humour at times..

The excitement of a work nearing conclusion! This piece will be on exhibit early next year..
It’s interesting watching the sunlight through the window and shadows from the trees move across the painting. Work in progress.
Perhaps the title is decided for this next piece. A work in progress- I just painted another layer onto the painting, playing with tree poses and silhouettes.
Recalling the dark sky descending onto the treetops where the clouds met the forest fog, from my viewpoint inside the woods with wet socks and warm feet, I just observe..
