Are we there yet?

Parkway Series #8 12 x 16 oil $85.

A big question for most artists is when to stop working on a painting. There is always the temptation to work it to death which I do frequently. I chose to stop working on this painting sooner than most. I like the loose brush strokes and more of the red background showing through. Is it finished? I'm not sure; I will live with it for awhile before I make that decision.

  1. Hi Janet, I got an email from you thru the Lonely Arts Club! and I'm glad I did 'cuz I never would have found your blog. The painting you posted above looks finished to me. It's still fresh and lively. I tend to over work myself.
