I have just a little more to go on this piece before it is finished. I will mostly focus on balancing and blending the background of blue and gray. I spent my day, Cezanne the "father" of painting and Edgar Allen Poe's Birthday (long live the Raven), painting a series of florals. It was a nice day, so I was able to work with the windows open, had veggie eggrolls poolside for lunch, then back to my canvases and paint.. Since I began working early, painting all day, the studio overflowed with wet canvases all the way out on to the screened in porch. It's evening now, and I pulled my work back inside under the light of the full moon.
